Brassica crops are an integral part of a systematic approach to pasture renewal. As excellent sources of high-quality feed, brassicas improve animal productivity due to the high quantities of forage available for grazing. Brassicas also allow the use of selective chemistry, which is an essential part of cleaning paddocks up before perennial pastures are sown.

Use brassica, or chicory after sowing winter active ryegrass as part of a programmed approach to: 

  • assist in covering feed shortages
  • provide high quality feed
  • break the perennial weed cycle
  • address drainage and fertility issues
  • break wild endophyte cycles
  • create a foundation for improving direct drilling
  • enjoy homegrown feed all year round

Pallaton provides feed when farmers need it most bridging the summer/autumn feed gap for beef, sheep and dairy as a result of its impressive water use efficiency. Pallaton is high yielding, aphid tolerant, highly palatable and displays drought tolerance and strong plant persistence under multiple grazings.
