Perennial Ryegrass

Information

Perennial ryegrass is a perennial fodder grass with loose clusters. Ideal for meadow and pasture mixtures. This is one of the most valuable pasture grasses due to its very good nutritional value and palatability. Aggressive, quickly regrowing, resistant to trampling. It is sensitive to summer droughts and cold winters. In the case of perennial ryegrass, dry matter digestibility is at the level of 78%, protein content in dry matter at about 16%, sugar content at 12.5%. 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

Artemis
Medium early tetraploid of perennial ryegrass, recommended for hay meadows and pastures. It is characterized by very high nutritional value and high seed yield (15-20 dt/ha)
Maja
Tetraploid variety, medium early recommended for hay meadows and pastures. Medium-tall plants (about 78 cm), resistant to frost and drought. Green matter yield about 1120 dt/ha. Dry matter yield – about 200 dt/ha. Dry matter digestibility – about 76%. Protein content in dry matter – about 14.5%. Sugar content in dry matter – about 11.8% Very palatable. Willingly eaten in the pasture. The recommended planting rate for seed plantations is about 20 kg/ha
Malowana
Medium early tetraploid of perennial ryegrass, recommended for hay meadows and pastures.
Naki
Diploid grass, early, intended for pastures, hay meadows and hay fields. An early variety, it grows back well in spring and after mowing, produces a lot of generative shoots, in the following years of use it is characterized by good turfing, gives a high and faithful seed yield, good winter hardiness, resistant to diseases and lodging. It has some lawn plant features, making it useful in lawn mixes. The highest yield potential among perennial ryegrass diploids – up to 15 dt/ha
