VICTOR Combicrop® is a precise blend of spring oats and a combining pea. It is a low input crop to grow but still achieves first-class feed for young stock, cattle and sheep.
VICTOR is best sown as your last combining crop in your tillage rotation as it will yield better than other Combicrops® in lower fertility situations.
It will give a total crop yield equal to, and in many cases higher, than straight oats and can be grown without the use of expensive herbicides, fungicides or insecticides.
Growing VICTOR Combicrop® gives you a WIN – WIN situation as it not only provides the protein needed to feed your livestock but it also acts as a soil conditioner, leaving the soil structure very much improved after harvest.
On highly fertile soils no NPK will be needed – the peas will easily produce enough free nitrogen for the crop and leave a substantial residue for the following crop.
- Combine dry to produce a feed concentrate meal that is high in starch with 14% to 18% protein (50% to 60% more than straight oats)
- Wholecrop fermented harvested at 25% to 45% dry matter to feed on its own or with grass silage as a forage for stock
IMPORTANT: Do not use a pre-emergence or post-emergence herbicide with VICTOR Combicrop®.
