Performance Data

Mohaka can be used as a short to medium term pasture for sheep and beef finishing, as well as being a high-performance hybrid ryegrass suited to dairy platforms, undersowing and runoffs for high quality silage production. For a tetraploid hybrid pasture, Mohaka has good density for short periods of set stocking and winter grazing. It has a good spring growth habit while maintaining low aftermath seeding in summer helping with pasture quality through into autumn. Mohaka with AR37 endophyte offers increased protection against insect attack and increasing long term benefits, however it is not suitable for deer and horse pastures. Mohaka AR1 will be released in the near future.
