Eliza is a soft seeded early maturing French serradella type, producing large quantities of high quality fodder with high seed yields. This annual legume is available in pod form only with flowering occurring between 90 -115 days after an early May sowing. This upright variety is suitable for hay or silage production, either alone or in mixtures with oats or ryegrass. French serradella has a deep root system (over 2m in sandy soil) and can access deeper moisture and nutrients than the shallow rooted clovers and medics. In deep coarse-textured soils this can result in an extra 2-6 weeks of green feed in late spring or early summer.
Please be aware this variety is currently under PBR and subject to Terms & Conditions.
- Rainfall 250mm – 400mm
- French serradella will usually nodulate in soils with a previous history of lupin crops or pastures. However, it is recommended that seed for sowing be inoculated with Group S inoculant.
- Sowing rates 10-20kg per hectare
- Very palatable to stock and high nutritive value
- Adapted to deep infertile, coarse textured soils
