Puna II is a true perennial chicory bred for improved animal performance. It delivers premium quality feed and a high dry matter yield. Puna II is ideally suited to dairy pastures and finishing systems due to its semi-erect growth habit. It has a fast regrowth after grazing, especially if rotationally grazed and establishes well in pasture swards.
Pasture seed sowing rate (sole): 6-10kg/ha
Pasture seed sowing rate (mixed): 2-8kg/ha
Chicory should be rotationally grazed for best performance and persistence. Hard grazing, particularly in wet conditions, may cause damage to the crown and can affect production and persistence.
Minimum 500mm rainfall per annum unless irrigated
