MAJOR

MAJOR

Lolium westerwoldicum

Westerwold/annual ryegrass

Annual ryegrass for fast efficient production of dry matter

Multi-cut
MAJOR is quite persistent for an annual ryegrass and can produce up to 4 cuts in favourable years.

High quality grazing or conservation (hay or silage)
Although the primary use of annual ryegrasses is conservation as hay or silage, MAJOR can be grazed as well and provides a very high quality forage.

Mixtures
For improved protein content MAJOR can be associated with legumes like red clover and for more complementarity with other annual or Italian ryegrasses.

  • Tetraploid with very high quality
  • Annual allowing more cuts
  • Disease tolerant
  • Very suitable mixing partner
