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.
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.
