REDDING

REDDING

Lolium perenne

Perennial ryegrass

Lating heading diploid perennial ryegrass with early start in spring

Large spring window

With about 64 days from growth start to beginning of heading, REDDING will produce quality forage over a very long period. This makes it a good option for early grazing as the main part of the 64 days comes from the early start compared to varieties heading +/- 3 days after/before REDDING. The early start shows in the high yield of 1st cut too.

Disease tolerant

REDDING has a very high rust tolerance that will preserve forage quality and palatability, especially in the summer and autumn period where this disease can be devastating.

Persistency and quality

Ryegrasses produce high quality forage for demanding animals. REDDING has good persistency and is easy to manage for conservation due to the higher dry matter content than tetraploids.

  • Very early growth start in the spring
  • Excellent rust resistance
  • Large spring window
  • Late heading
