Boston Plantain thrives and persists in a wide range of soil types and climatic zones. The genetic material sourced for the breeding of Boston is extremely drought resistant and also cold tolerant. Boston has a smaller seed than other plantains on the market (up to 25% more seeds per kg), allowing for a lower sowing rate.
Boston is suited to high producing pastures and also suits drier regions and less fertile conditions. With its deep root system, Boston has the ability to respond quickly after dry summer conditions. Because it is a later flowering plant Boston can significantly extend the period of productvie growth in the summer period.
