Tabu+

Diploid italian ryegrass

Tabu+ is a record-breaker, with explosive establishment speed and superior cool season growth. It is the only 5 star ryegrass in the Forage Value Index for winter feed.

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 3.4t DM/ha over Moata as a 12 month crop. For an additional seed cost (e.g. $50/ha) for Tabu+, that equates to a 2000% ROI, given this extra feed is valued at about $0.30/kg DM or an extra $1020/ha operating profit (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.
