What makes PGG Wrightson Seeds tropical and subtropical seeds different from the rest? The Envirogro® seed treatment process!
Envirogro® seed treatment increases the seed count and purity of tropical and subtropical grasses and legumes. In the bare form, many varieties can be difficult to establish because of the low flowability characteristics and potentially can contain weed or other contaminants. Envirogro® is a patented seed treatment that can improve this common problem.
Seed is processed and cleaned to various states improving purity and pure live seed. It is then treated with an insecticide (Gaucho®) and coated giving each seedling a better chance to survive, thus reducing the risk of establishment failure.
Don’t forget to ask us for a purity and germination certificate to see the seed count per kg and live seed count with your next order.
Brachiaria is tolerant of water logging, salinity and very acid soils.
It is very resistant to heavy grazing and standing high stocking rates over the wet season. Sound management is needed as it should not be allowed to become too rank. It is aggressive against weeds and also legumes.
Perennial, twining and trailing legume for permanent pastures for beef-finishing and dairy production in the humid coastal, and elevated tropics and humid subtropical regions.
Guinea Grass is a clump-forming perennial which grows best in warm frost-free areas. The deep, dense and fibrous root system allows guinea grass to survive long drought periods. It performs best on well drained soils with good fertility in high rainfall regions. Guinea grass has withstood heavy continuous grazing with stocking rates of 2.5 beasts per ha for long periods under rainfall of 3,000mm per year. It will perform better under rotational grazing.
Stylos are perennial tropical legumes sown on a variety of soil textures in medium to high summer dominant rainfall zones.
They are commonly used within natural and sown pasutre systems to provide a valuable protein source for grazing livestock.
