Multicut has been bred to surpass many of the existing hybrids in dry matter production, protein and energy content, disease and drought tolerance. It also has rapid re-growth under heavy grazing and unfavourable growing conditions.

Benefits - Multicut can be grazed, cut for hay, silage or fed as green chop and has quick initial growth with grazing from 3-6 weeks after planting. The re-growth and tillering is rapid and it can grow 50 mm a day to height of 3 m.
