Mount Cook Chicory

Mt Cook is a high-yielding broadleaf perennial chicory cultivar developed in the USA. Produced and proven right here in New Zealand by Carrfields Grain & Seed it offers growers exceptional summer and autumn production in its first season, with 15-20 day return periods throughout the North Island. It is super quick to resume growth the following spring but like all perennial chicories will require regular grazing combined with follow-up topping to help keep flowering in check in its second year. Mt Cook also offers excellent Sclerotinia resistance and drought tolerance and can be grown as a pure stand or as a mixture with grass and clover.
