Tabu+

Diploid italian ryegrass

  • Bred to supersede the best selling Tabu, with significantly higher total DM yield
  • Explosive establishment speed
  • Superior cool season growth
  • High DM yield and fast regrowth
  • An 8-12 month high performance crop
  • Tabu+ provides high levels of animal performance

    Tabu+ was bred to supersede the best selling Tabu, with significantly higher total DM yield. Tabu+ is nutritious, with explosive establishment speed and superior cool season growth.

     

    Multi-use

    Tabu+ is suitable as an 8-12 month high performance crop; can last 2-3 years in areas with mild summers, or can be used for undersowing into run out pasture to boost winter-spring growth. In dense pastures spraying before drilling is recommended. Note: In situations where a pasture is required for 12+ months Shogun NEA may be a better option.

     

    High DM yield

    Tabu+ is the top yielding Italian ryegrass in the National Forage Variety Trials (NFVT) with significantly more winter growth. It is out yielded only by Shogun NEA hybrid ryegrass.

     

     

     

    2000% ROI

    Tabu+ produced an extra 340 kg DM/ha over Tabu as an 8 month crop (from sowing through winter to mid spring). For a small additional seed cost (e.g. $5/ha) for Tabu+, that equates to a 2000% ROI, given this cool season feed is highly valuable, i.e. $0.35/kg DM or an extra $103/ha (value calculated from the DairyNZ FVI).

    Italian & annual

    Italians are fast establishing with good winter growth and feed quality. Mainly used for short term winter crop, 2-3 year pasture under summer mild condtions, or undersowing into run out pasture to boost growth. 

    Annuals are generally used for 6-8 month winter crop prior to sowing a summer crop. Similar winter growth to Italian ryegrass but generally have little persistence.
