Chicory is an eye catching, mineral rich forage herb that has a long taproot capable of penetrating to great depth, breaking through plough pans and leaving the soil aerated, aiding drainage and crop root development. It’s frequently used in combination with other species as a soil improving species and is commonly used as an addition to grazing leys due to its high protein content and its ability to fatten lambs. It is also a known anthelmintic species.
If sowing as a straight, sow at 5kg/ha. or 2kg/ac. If adding to a mixture, a lower rate may be applicable – please contact us for more information if you are unsure or have any other questions.
