The FVI (Forage Value Index) was developed by DairyNZ in conjunction with the New Zealand Plant Breeding and Research Association (NZPBRA). Each cultivar has an associated star rating to represent its rank in the Forage Value Index. The FVI is based on National Forage Variety Trial (NFVT) data supplied by NZPBRA.
H&T pasture mixes are the product of rigorous, independent analysis of all commercially available certified New Zealand seed lines. H&T combine FVI data with region-specific performance and system suitability to give you confidence in your pastures.
