Suitable for Hay, Silage and pasture
First for protein
Selected to meet the protein needs of farmers, RACHEL had the best protein concentration per kg dry matter in trials (107% of control, CTPS data) RACHEL also has a place in all farming systems milk or meat.
Rachel: Protein 107% stem thickness 5,0
Temoin: Protein 100% stem thickness 7,2
Ideal soft stems
RACHEL’S soft stems shortens the drying time. Resulting in an economic turning, limiting the loss of leaves in the field. RACHEL is best consumed at the trough, including hay. It is recommended for small ruminants (sheep and goats) Breeders have found a significant decrease in feed refusal.
Resistant to lodging
It allows a quick harvest without much vegetative loss and without altering its feed qualities.
RECOMMENDATIONS: From late July to late September or spring, March-April, at a dose of 20 to 25 kg / ha in pure or 15 kg / ha associated with 12 kg of orchard grass or tall fescue. Possibility of seedlings under cover of cereal or sunflower. Depth 1-2 cm maximum with narrow spacing. Roll before and after planting. fertilization: Establishment: – no nitrogen at planting – 80 to 100 u of phosphoric acid and 200 to 300 u of potash, – Calcium rich or amendments magnesia poor soils. Usage: – no nitrogen in pure culture – In combination, nitrogen 50 u for the 1st output grows winter and 30 to 40 after maximum u each operation. Warning: too much nitrogen would remove the legume. protection: Monitor and treat if the presence of slugs. weeding: Early, at the stage 2-3 trifoliate leaves with selective antidicot alfalfa, he quickly preserves the yield and quality of the prairie. Ask your technician. Use: In association with a grass, it is easier to keep the silage (better sugar content).
