Lolium perenne

Perennial ryegrass

Diploid, early-intermediate
Outstanding performance for your 1. cut!

Fabulous 1st cut as a drought strategy

How do you benefit from superior 1st cut yields early in the season?

WAKTE will show you - with an extremely high yield performance in the 1st cut, most of the forage can be generated before the summer drought. WAKTE proves here an immense improvement in the German market with a strong BSA score of 7!

No space for weeds or rust

Don't you wish there were fewer weeds in a lush grass stand? Due to the immense sward density WAKTE leaves no room for unwanted plants (BSA score is above average). You will notice this already after the cut has been made, where WAKTE grows back quickly from a dense sward. At the same time, WAKTE's leaves remain healthy throughout. This is made possible by the inbred high rust resistance. 

Much dry matter with few stems increases efficiency!

WAKTE demonstrates an overall high yield character with a relative DM yield of 104. The DM yield in the further cuts is above average for WAKTE with a BSA score of 6. 

The all-around high yield potential of WAKTE, creates a palatable and high quality forage. This is due to the high leaf content and low stem content in WAKTE's growth habit. 

  • High leaf content in official BSA trials
  • High density to suppress weeds
  • No chance for rust
  • Improved 1st cut performance in the German market


Scale 1-9, where 9 = best or most pronounced
