The choice for dual purpose grass fields

Your first choice for dual purpose
KINTYRE is outstanding under either cutting or grazing regimes with an excellent seasonal growth pattern. Good forage quality at 1st and 2nd cut stage, KINTYRE is an essential ingredient in long term dual purpose leys.

KINTYRE for conservation
KINTYRE gave the highest total yield under conservation in SAC (Scotland)trials of late tetraploid ryegrasses. Not only were yields exceptional at the 1st and 2nd cut stages, KINTYRE also provided top yields later on in the season for maximum output.

KINTYRE for grazing
As farmers aim to keep animals out longer to maximise output from grazing fields, it is vital to have varieties that have peak yields in the later summer months. KINTYRE is especially good at this time and so allows the farmer to extend the grazing season on his fields.

  • Perfect dual purpose variety
  • High total yield at conservation
  • Peak yield in late summer
  • High feeding value
