Lolium perenne

Perennial ryegrass

Fast Forage in all Climates!

GARIBALDI is very productive in terms of DM yield (see table below) as well as in terms of good forage feeding quality. The regrowth is very quick and the persistence is also very good.

Official trails in Poland proved that the winterhardiness of GARIBALDI was the best! GARIBALDI is growing dense and it represents the new dense tetraploid type of perennial ryegrass.

Broad adaptation
GARIBALDI also shows very good figures in France where it is also approved and recommended, which is an impressive indication of its broad adaptively to different climates.
