Top Ton Spring Barley

SiloBuster Plus Pea & Barley mix offers an elite combination of quality forage peas (60% LC6040) and forage barley (40% Top Ton), ideal as nurse crop or straight forage. SiloBuster mixes can be planted in early spring to serve as a nurse crop or early fall to fulfill forage needs.

 

CHARACTERISTICS:

  • Seed Quality: LC 6040 peas have a tougher seed coat
  • Dry Matter Yield: LC 6040 peas have longer vines, larger leaf surface, giving higher yield, more milk
  • Establishment: LC 6040 peas emerge faster, especially in cooler soils. The LC 6040 seed coat contains a more effective metabolic system that imparts the ability to germinate and emerge more rapidly, when soils are wet or cool.

 

SEEDING:

Seeding Rate:
Alone (lbs./acre): 100-150
As Nurse Crop (lbs./acre): 100-120

Planting Time: Best in early spring or fall when weather is cooler and moisture is reliable.

Life Cycle: Annual

 

MANAGEMENT:

Harvest should be based on maturity of small grain:

  • Late boot stage for lactating dairy cows
  • Soft dough stage for heifers, dry cows and beef cattle
