|Newbury Paddock Mixture
(14.00kg BAG – COVERS 1 ACRE)
Horses and ponies are choosy grazers. Offer them a paddock with a good covering of grass and for no apparent reason they’ll still pick and choose between different areas. It is therefore important to ensure that any area grazing horses should be seeded with a high seeding rate which includes plenty of ‘bottom’ grass to produce a dense sward capable of withstanding hard wear.
Our NEWBURY PADDOCK MIXTURE designed specifically for ponies and horses, has been a firm favourite in the equine market for many years. It provides long lasting grazing with a wide range of ‘bottom’ grasses and is regarded by many as the mixture by which all others are judged.
Specially formulated to provide exceptionally long seasonal growth with low nitrogen inputs, although well-timed application would produce a very high quality hay crop if required. Varieties chosen are high in fibre and lower in water soluble carbohydrate as well as being hardwearing and persistent. The addition of a dwarf Perennial Ryegrass will make the field more hard wearing and less prone to poaching.
