Lolium perenne

Perennial ryegrass

Get ahead with this late heading diploid PRG!

Better yield distribution

KIMBUKO starts early end March/early April allowing a very wide spring window due to the late heading in the beginning of June depending on the year.

Higher summer production...with quality preserved

The summer production is high and the quality is secured by an excellent rust resistance and very little reheading (aftermath heading).

All criteria united for a top grazing variety

  • Late heading
  • Low aftermath heading
  • Excellent rust tolerance
  • Diploid with better ground cover
