Increased dry matter and animal production in harsh environments

Ideal for the lighter textured red soils of western Queensland and New South Wales, Western Red grass and legume mix can persist on the extremes of limited soil fertility and rainfall while remaining productive and persistent. Western Red provides increased dry matter production and a protein source after feed quality has declined due to its hardy legume component.

Gayndah/USA Buffel: Envirogro treated
Persistent, deep rooted and tufted perennial, two of the mainstays for lower rainfall environments.
Wynn cassia: Envirogro treated
Unique ability to persist and perform on low fertility soils.

Available with the Envirogro seed treatment process

The Envirogro seed treatment process gives PGG Wrightson Seeds tropical and subtropical seed varieties a better start. Envirogro is a tailored process, that cleans, treats, and improves the bare seed count and purity of tropical, subtropical grasses and legumes.

If the species requires, the bare seed is taken through a process of de-hulling leaving only the caryopses, before being coated and cleaned again to achieve high purity. 

Envirogro benefits

  • Coated with insecticide, polymer and talc/lime
  • Improved seed flowability and ballistic properties
  • Improves seed quality and purity
  • Increases bare seed count for a higher return on investment
  • Produces a clean, uniform seed
  • Reduced risk of establishment failure 
  • Removes seed husk from the caryopsis (if required)
  • Removes weed seed, waste material and contaminants
