RECOMMENDED LIST LATE PERENNIAL RYEGRASS VARIETIES 2020
RECOMMENDED LIST LATE PERENNIAL RYEGRASS VARIETIES 2020

When choosing your grass seed mixtures for 2020, varieties with strong PPI values and high quality are essential to maximise the return on your investment. Varieties with positive values for quality will help ensure you have a palatable mixture, which will support higher animal intakes and animal performance. 

Varieties with good spring and autumn growth are also desirable to increase grass availability at these key stages in your grazing season.

From 1st January 2020, farms in derogation must include 0.6 kg clover per acre or 1.0 kg coated clover per acre when reseeding. White, red or a mixture of both white and red clover is acceptable. Remember to use a clover-safe post emergence spray after sowing clover.
