Cavalier Spineless Burr Medic

Cavalier LeafCavalier is a spineless burr medic with a relatively high percentage of soft seed compared to Santiago.

It has high herbage and seed production. Developed to extend the role of annual medics, particularly in phase pastures, where higher levels of soft seed will result in more densely regenerating second year pastures. Cavalier is suited to farming systems with either a long-term or short-term phase.

Cavalier can provide a sound base for pasture with a broader range of maturity, pest and pathogen tolerances, and hard seededness. This allows for the pasture to respond to various environmental fluctuations, and management practices.
