Proven high yield
Maxsyn NEA4 has proven itself across New Zealand farms to deliver consistently high yield year-round.
Shines in summer
Maxsyn’s strength is its warm season growth. Summer is a time most farm systems are short of feed, so extra pasture is highly valued. Visually you can see the difference, with Maxsyn staying green longer into hot summer conditions.
The more tillers a pasture has, the more robust and persistent it is. Maxsyn is denser than Trojan, and similar to Governor ryegrass.
Maxsyn has excelled in our breeding and trial programme, particularly on tough sites in the hotter climate of the upper North Island and on difficult soils.
Maxsyn has our top persistence rating, due to several factors including how well it works with NEA4 endophyte, plus its strong summer growth and tillering.
But its persistence advantage starts in spring, as it is easier to graze, which encourages new daughter tillers, thickens the pasture, and helps set it up for summer.
1 + 1 = 3
Maxsyn and NEA4 endophyte together add up to more than their parts. This combination shows excellent persistence in the field under real world pressures such as moisture stress, heat, insects and overgrazing, sometimes all at once.
For dairy cows and beef, Maxsyn NEA4 provides ryegrass staggers free pasture. For sheep and deer, there is a very low risk of ryegrass staggers when grazing NEA4 endophyte.
