Phalaris is arguably the most widely used and most persistent perennial grass on the market. Phalaris is a deep rooted, drought tolerant perennial that is suited to a wide range of soil types. Phalaris is set to continue to be the backbone of the sheep/beef zones throughout Australia, with many growers chosing to plant perennial pastures due to the great livestock prices. With low sowing rates required, Phalaris continues to represent value for money for all livestock producers.
Phalaris Sowing Tip
Phalaris, like Fescues and Cocksfoot are slow to establish so care must be taken to ensure it is sown into a well prepared weed free seed bed. Phalaris has the capability to survive droughts, whilst still producing large volumes of forage. With new seeding technology it has made direct drilling Phalaris a real and viable prospect, when traditionally this was thought to be an irresponsible practice.
