New to Australia after proving sound performance in AGF Seeds trials. Bred by DSV in Germany Apex has demonstrated later maturity and quality feed production right through the season. Apex combines well with short-term legumes such as Persian/shaftal and balansa clover. An excellent choice for grazing, silage and hay option, with late season quality to make most of good soil conditions or late rain. In trials, Apex has proven its adaptability to Australian growing conditions.
Pinnacle is a new late flowering tetraploid annual ryegrass with an outstanding profile of desirable characteristics. It has good seedling vigour, excellent winter production, fantastic late season production and forage quality. It has outstanding rust resistance.
SF Adrenalin is a tetraploid annual ryegrass developed from three components and selected for fast establishment, good early feed and improved standability for fodder conservation.
Red Gum 2
Redgum is a mid season varity adaptable to a wide range of growing enviroments. Excellent palatability and vigour. Suitable for Grazing, Silage and Hay offering excellent regrowth potential
A mid season good value Tetraploid annual ryegrass with production of quality feed in autumn, winter and spring. Combines well with short-term legumes such as Persian/shaftal and balansa clover. It is quicker to first grazing than new sowings of perennial ryegrass and lasts longer than cereals. A grazing, silage and hay option.
Tetila is a short term tetraploid type ryegrass. It offers the advantages of high seedling vigour, strong Winter growth and high annual production.
Extend the growing season at both ends with XTEND; a mid flowering Italian ryegrass, and make the most of early and late moisture. We are very excited to be able to offer the Australian market a new ryegrass that is proving terrific value.
Xtend will be your friend early too, being a very fast establishing Italian diploid ryegrass that yields exceptional growth and performance early and late. An excellent choice for grazing, hay and silage.
SF Accelerate is a diploid Italian ryegrass developed from four components and selected for high forage yields with rapid recovery after grazing. It is a late season variety flowering some 12 days later than Tetila types, and similar to Crusader.
It has good cool season production, but also excellent summer production and second year recovery. SF Accelerate has improved feed quality compared to other commercial diploid cultivars - consistently lower NDF and higher ME levels throughout the growing season
SF Indulgence Dip Q
SF Indulgence is the world first release of the unique new DipQ concept. The DipQ tag has been assigned to Seed Force varieties that have measured levels of improved quality which are drivers of animal production and can improve profitability.
SF Indulgence is a fine leaf, densely tillered and persistent Italian ryegrass. It has now demonstrated its DipQ status here and will set a new standard for short-term ryegrass in the market.
AGF Jackal AR1, new in 2018, is a diploid variety with mid-maturity around +7 days to flower compared to Victorian. Perfectly suited to medium rainfall environments where persistence and production is the focus.
SF Hustle AR1
SF Hustle AR1 is a mid maturity (+15 days to Victorian) diploid perennial ryegrass. Combining excellent production with a mid heading date helps ensure its suitability to many systems nationwide.
MARRATHON LE has improved early season production compared to Victorian and has been bred for persistence. Marrathon LE will suit farmers who require a medium term pasture with reduced animal health affects compared to wild endophyte ryegrasses. It should be considered a good value component of pasture blends.
Victorian Perennial Ryegrass is a locally grown ecotype well suited to its local environment. While its production is often less than modern varieties its ability to endure is a key feature of this variety.
SF Finesse-Q is a high yielding, densely tillered, soft-leaf fescue with semi-late heading. It is extremely persistent due to its dense nature and has no fescue endophyte. It has an intermediate growth pattern better suited to much of Australia’s oceanic climate, and has performed well in trials sown here in 2006. Its tiller density and high leaf quality make it well suited to dairy, beef and sheep. Its lack of endophyte makes it also suited to grazing by horses, goats and alpacas
SF Lazuly is a new type of soft leaf oceanic cocksfoot with improved winter activity over SF Greenly. It should be sown at higher sowing rates to produce a fine, dense soft sward.
It has no adverse animal health effects from endophyte and good resistance to pasture pests.
SF Jeronimo is a new highly winter active prairie grass with a broad fit for pasture systems where rotational grazing is used. It has similar maturity to Matua and has excellent capacity for re-seeding into pasture swards
SF Mate is a highly winter active phalaris bred in Argentina with excellent autumn to spring forage production and good persistence. It has good seedling vigour and high autumn/winter forage yields. SF Mate is about 2 weeks earlier flowering than Holdfast making it better suited to the 250-600mm mixed farming zone. It can also be sown as the sole perennial grass with sub clover, or in a mix with summer active cocksfoot varieties for all year round feed. It is also suited to sowing at 0.5-1kg/ha with lucerne.
