Genetic Seed Crimson is a branched rooted, high forage yielding winterhardy variety designed for poorly drained soils. root system, has been genetically designed to express a greater degree of the branched rooted trait.
Our Crimson Red is a good companion clover to a highly productive tap rooted variety such as Faster Pasture Ryegrasses.
The branched-root trait helps keep more of the root system above the water table which allows for better oxygen exchange and nodulation to produce nitrogen and better secures the plant in the ground when freezing and thawing occurs. The branch rooted trait is indeterminate in nature which means root branching will increase as moisture stresses intensify.
HIGHLY INSECT & DISEASE RESISTANT
The Ryegrass/Oats/Clover/Vetch mixture will give you nitrogen and soil building to help cut fertility cost. General estimates of the amount of nitrogen fixed range just from Clover is 50 to 100 lb N/acre for annuals. With Genetics Crimson Red having a higher root mass, our studies are showing up to 140 pounds per acre
Austrian winter peas contributed 60-80 pounds per acre of nitrogen credits.
Vetch is generally considered to be the best of the legume winter cover crops for nitrogen production. Nitrogen credits can range between 45-180 pounds per acre.
With the NEW Genetic Seed varieties, FASTER PASTURE RED DIXIE CRIMSON, FASTER PASTURE HAIRY VETCH, and FASTER PASTURE COMMON VETCH, by Genetic Seeds increase of the plants root mass. Genetics nitrogen fixation credits are reaching as HIGH as 230 pounds per acre. A must use products for todays high fertility cost.
Legumes contain five times the calcium, 30 to 50% more phosphorus, and twice the magnesium of grasses. Calcium and phosphorus are critical for the formation and maintenance of bones and teeth. Calcium is involved in virtually every biochemical and physiological process in the body and is especially important for milk production. Phosphorus is critical for reproduction and is involved with more biological functions than any other mineral element. The primary function of magnesium in the animal is the activation of enzymes. Magnesium deficiency causes grass tetany that is associated with lactating cows grazing cool-season grasses in the spring. Milk production, growth, and reproduction are always higher on a pasture with a legume than one without a legume given the same amount of available forage.
