We’re delighted to announce an initial release of Captain cool season plantain (CSP) for sowing this spring.
Captain CSP is the newest pasture cultivar from Barenbrug, and comes after years of breeding, plant selection and rigorous trial work by our New Zealand R&D team.
This new plantain was bred especially for cool season growth, to provide more feed when it is most needed on farm, and to enhance the nitrogen-leaching mitigation capabilities that winter growth brings.
Captain CSP is the best yielding commercial plantain in our trials over the cool seasons of autumn, winter and early spring.
It is also a top-ranking variety in overall DM yield, boasting excellent summer DM production.
