Ohau has strong early spring activity (Figure 1, page 8), which allows it to contribute valuable growth in the critical early lambing and calving period.
Ohau is an extremely palatable grass, with a high feed value. Ohau’s palatability results in pastures with a high green leaf content over summer. Ohau is the ideal option for high quality, 3-4 year pasture in conditions suited to tetraploid ryegrass. The rapid establishment of Ohau also makes it ideal for undersowing into older pastures, with the AR37 endophyte offering increased protection against insect attack and increasing long term benefits.
