Grow More Pasture Fast… from Autumn through to Spring

From Autumn through to Spring… and reduce supplementary feeding

Grow more pasture fast

ProGibb SG stimulates plant growth by stimulation cell expansion which results in leaf and stem elongation. Applying ProGibb SG to freshly grazed pastures leads to rapid foliage growth.

 

Visual responses can often be seen in 7 days although maximum dry matter production does not occur for 3-4 weeks. Commercial demonstrations have shown increases in dry matter ranging from 30 to 60%.

Reduce supplementary feeding

The use of ProGibb SG can significantly reduce the cost of supplementary feed. When compairing the cost of supplementry feed sources., ProGibb SG stands out as one of the cheapest and easiest options available.

The cost of feed from an application of ProGibb SG giving a 400 kg/ha DM response is 0.45 cents/megajoule ME (based on an average temperate pasture of 11 megajoules ME/kg with the ProGibb SG costing $20/ha)

In example below, the extra feed is well over 3 times cheaper than other supplementary feed options.
