Knowing the performance of grass and clover is immensely useful for grassland producers. Grass trials are a key research tool for advancing farming knowledge and animal profitability. All varieties in our grass mixtures have a proven record of performance over a period of years at a number of different locations, and are deemed most suitable for Irish conditions.
Growers should give preference to the Recommended List varieties unless there is strong evidence that some other variety is more suited to their farming platform. The Department of Agriculture Irish Grass and Clover Recommended List are drawn up after rigorous testing for attributes such as yield, persistency, quality and disease resistance and is available for download below.
