Forage crops are an extremely cost effective way of supplementing livestock rations when fodder may be scarce, such as through dry spells in the summer and through the cold winter months. Not only that, but many forage crop seeds produce great green manure crops - helping to improve the health of the soil and significantly improve the output of agricultural rotations.
Here at Boston Seeds, we have a vast range of wholesome forage crop seeds to choose from, such as the winter hardy brown mustard which is perfect for creating green manure, stubble turnip and forage kale. We also offer a diverse range of forage crop mixtures and arable silage mixtures - perfect as a nutritious and varied alternative to maize and grass when conditions aren't ideal for sowing.
Not only do we offer root crops for foraging, but we also offer a tasty selection of agricultural herbs, too. Herbs such as chicory seed, yarrow seed and Sainfoin seed - all of which are highly palatable, easy to sow and hardy making them a welcomed addition in existing grassland areas and paddocks.
