Clanrye is a new variety on the Irish recommendedlist in 2014. It’s one of the leading varieties for yield amongst the late diploids (see table). In the trials, Clanrye yielded 3,1% more dry matter than the control varieties, which equals 450 kg DM/ha per year. In this way, your renewed sward allows you to increase stocking rate and/or shorten rotation length to increase output from grass.
This Barenbrug/AFBI-variety is perfectly suitable for the Irish grazing system. Its late heading date ensureshigh quality and grass intake throughout the growingseason. On top of that, an outstanding ground covermakes that Clanrye will bring persistency and longterm production to the field. With Clanrye in the sward, you’re ready for the future!
