CADIZ IS a highly-productive pasture plant adapted to deep sandy, often acidic, soils and with adaptation across a wide range of rainfall regimes from as little as 350 mm to as much as 700 mm annual rainfall. Being deep-rooted, the plant can have an extended flowering period and consequent high forage and seed yields.
The unique characteristics of Cadiz , however, are its high level of 'soft' seed and the upright habit of the plant that allows easy harvesting with conventional cereal harvesters. Together these two characteristics add up to 'cheap pasture seed'.
