Annual Forages

Flexible Forage Production

Annual forages provide quick establishment, soil improvement properties and high biomass yield over the course of one growing season. Annual production increases flexibility due to the short-term nature of the stand and can provide a compliment to perennial forages to extend the quality and duration of forage availability. Annuals have been used in various applications in Western Canada including hay, grazing, winter stockpiling, companion crops and cover crops.
