GROWING ADVICE
•Drill into a good, firm, weed free seedbed
•Plant to a depth of 15 mm in standard rows
•Plant to a depth of 1-2 cm, row widths of 35-40
cm apart
•Seed can be broadcast but drilling is preferable
•To encourage rapid growth apply up to 60 kg/ha
N, 1/3 into the seedbed and remaining amount 3
weeks later
•Some herbicides can be applied, please contact a
local agronomist or environmental adviser
•To remove – wait until late in the spring, allowing
farmland birds access to all seed, then top, spray
and cultivate in preparation for re-planting
•Drill into warm soils, May-August
•To encourage rapid growth apply
30 kg/ha N
•Period of use – approximately 12-14 weeks from
planting
•Once the mix has reached mid-flowering it should
either be destroyed with glyphosate or topped at
mid height to offset flowering, encourage further
rooting and prolong the longevity of use
•It is important not to let the mix go beyond
the mid-flowering point as this will avoid any
concerns regarding potential seed set
