27/07/2016 Weekly Grass Growth - Figures provided by PastureBase

Posted: 28 Jul 2016




Growth rate for the 27/07/2016 was 72 kg DM/ha/day. This is slightly back from the previous week at 78 kg DM /ha/day. Growth rate is still above average for this time of year. This is likely to continue with good heat forecast for the coming week. Care is needed to ensure the average farm cover doesn’t rise too quickly as sward quality and animal performance will be comprised. With dry weather coming over the weekend, any surpluses should be cleared now to allow farms to build cover from a clean base for the autumn.
