Hybrid Ryegrass

Information

Fodder grass that works best on moderately moist soils. It has a higher durability than Italian ryegrass. It is characterized by large amounts of green mass and very good nutritional parameters. Works best on rich sandy loam soils with a pH of 6-6.5. Strongly reacts to abundant mineral fertilization and irrigation. The best growing site is followed by legumes and root crops. However, it’s successful aft er all plants. In field cultivation it can be used for 2-3 years. It is useful for cultivating in pure stand or in mixtures with red clover and lucerne, for green fodder, hay, haylage and as an aftercrop plant.

Varieties

Gosia
Tetraploid variety, medium early in the type of perennial ryegrass (up to 5 years of use), intended for hay fields. s. It has the durability of varieties of perennial ryegrass, significantly exceeding the yield of green and dry matter It is characterized by high energy regrowth after swaths and high palatability and digestibility. It is a winter-hardy variety, resistant to diseases and lodging. Green mass yield of 1200-1500 dt/ha. Dry matter yield – 240-300 dt/ha. Dry matter digestibility – about 78%. Protein content in dry matter – about 14%. Sugar content in dry matter – about 12.2%. Seed yield up to 20 dt/ha. Useful for temporary meadows for hay, haylage, for dried crops, as well as for shortterm field pasture as an after crop plant. The variety shows durability unprecedented in this species (several years in field use). It also has a particularly high content of dry matt er, as well as protein and sugars in dry matter.
Mańka
Tetraploid variety, late, perennial ryegrass type (up to 5 years of use) with high regrowth energy. Intended for hay fields. It is characterized by good durability, a high yield of green and dry matter throughout the entire period of use, and a fast pace of regrowth after swaths, winter-hardiness, resistance to diseases and lodging. Useful for growing in pure stand or in mixtures with clover and lucerne, for harvesting green fodder, hay, haylage and as after crop plant.
Nadzieja
Tetraploid grass, medium early. A hybrid of perennial and Italian ryegrass (up to 3 years of use) with high winter hardiness and resistance to drought and lodging. Intended for hay fields. Nadzieja has a high yield of green and dry matter throughout the entire period of use and a rapid growth rate after swaths. Seed yield up to 25 dt/ha.
