A sugar grass with high feed quality and dry matter production

Aber Magic is a late maturing, diploid perennial ryegrass that raises the bar to new levels of animal production and pasture persistence. It is a high sugar grass that offers the highest feed quality available under both grazing and silage management. It is quick to establish with good winter/spring production and rust resistance.

Aber Magic is available with AR1 or Nil endophyte

Sow rate: 18-20 kg/ha with clovers and herbs

AberMagic is the first of a new generation of High Sugar Grass cultivars bred for higher sugar levels and dry matter yield. AberMagic has a late flowering date (19 days later than Nui) and offers exceptional year-round dry matter production.
The higher sugar content in Aber HSG ryegrass offers significant agronomic benefits because it enables ruminant animals (cattle, sheep and deer) to more easily and efficiently digest grass protein, and nitrogen use efficiency.
A further benefit offered by Aber HSG diploid ryegrasses is their strong persistency, as indicated by vigorous root growth.
In trials on IBERS research farms with Welsh half-bred ewes and lambs, the live weight gain of lambs was 20% higher where animals were grazing the HSG variety. In the same study, the carrying capacity (stocking rate) of the HSG sward was 20% higher than the standard ryegrass sward.
For regeneration avoid grazing or cutting during and post flowering (October– November) until the seed matures in early summer to ensure reseeding. Our variety in stock is safe for animals and should not pose fertility or bloating problems in grazing animals.
