Forage Specific Varieties
DL GOLDEYE – Forage Pea
DL Goldeye is a new forage pea variety ideally suited to use in forage blends, cover crop blends and for organic plowdown purposes. We selected DL Goldeye looking specifically for a forage pea variety that could offer the vigor and biomass of traditional forage pea lines but avoid the severe lodging and poor disease performance common to other forage pea varieties. DL Goldeye is a black hilum yellow pea with small seed size allowing for reduced seed rates. This line is ideally suited to companion seeding with our forage oat variety CDC Haymaker to produce a high volume high nutrition annual forage for greenfeed, baleage, silage and swath grazing applications. For easy establishment of annual forage we can offer DL Goldeye ready to seed with liquid inoculant applied at pick up to seed in one pass with CDC Haymaker forage oats by running them in separate tanks of an air seeder.
CDC HAYMAKER – Forage Oat
CDC Haymaker is a forage oat line that offers a BIG biomass advantage in the field vs normal milling oat varieties. CDC Haymaker produces huge leaves and thick stems to deliver impressive forage tonnage. Growers have been finding success with CDC Haymaker in greenfeed, silage, and swath grazing applications both grown alone or in a forage blend. Our new forage pea line DL Goldeye makes an excellent pairing with CDC Haymaker for planting an oat/pea forage blend.
