Re-grassing: The Many Benefits

Regrassing blog

“Pasture renewal is a profitable on farm investment with a fast return. Selecting the right mix of high performing varieties will ensure the productivity of your farming business.”
– Thomas Bird, Senior Agronomist, Wholesale Seeds

Re-grassing is one of the most cost-effective ways to ensure the future productivity of your farming business. The difference in yield between old and new pasture paddocks can be up to 8T of dry matter per hectare, per year.

Many regions around New Zealand are currently experiencing a surplus of feed, so it is a great time to identify and remediate poor pasture performance on farm through renewing pasture. Our agronomists are well versed in pasture renewal and will take you through each step of the process to ensure your success.

Factors to consider:

  • Cultivar and endophyte selection
  • Cultivation and drilling method
  • Weed and pest control
  • Fertiliser programmes
  • Grazing timing
