High yielding, outstanding persistence 

Puna is a top performing perennial herb with an extensive taproot which aids persistence. Puna is ideally suited to intensive sheep and beef grazing systems due to its prostrate growth. Puna is a reliable performer offering high quality feed through summer months making it an ideal companion in a finishing system. 

Puna chicory

Grazing management

Chicory should be rotationally grazed for best performance and persistence. Hard grazing, particularly in wet conditions, may cause damage to the crown and can affect production and persistence.

Rainfall

Minimum 500mm rainfall per annum unless irrigated
