LOLAN/Lolium multiflorum var. westerwoldicum
Westerwold Ryegrass 4n
The bridge between annuals and Italians
"Italian - Annual" type
Number one in yield.
Rather late heading = quality in spring
LOLAN is a very particular variety being intermediate between typical annual types and Italians types. This shows as much higher leaf/stem ratio than annuals and much faster growth than Italians.
The versatile choice
The particular type combining speed of growth yield and quality makes LOLAN the ideal choice when doubt about the optimal solution. And as both conservation amd grazing is possible - LOLAN is a safe choice.
Heading like Italian
Heading takes place about at the time of most Italians or even a little later. This leaves a very long period with leafy quality grass in the spring.
