Bolting describes the number of yellow flowers each cultivar develops over time, the lower the number the better, as a high number of bolters adversely affects the plant production and regrowth potential.

Kieran Young

“Pasja II certainly did its job with lambs being finished at a heavier than normal weight. The results were exceptional with a yield of 3200 kgDM/ha at first grazing.”
