Lots of Good Qualities
ZORRO is a tetraploid Italian Ryegrass having excellent qualities like high resistance to rust, very high productivity, resistance to dry periods and erect growth even in times of rainy weather. At the same time the very good results achieved under warm climatic conditions prove ZORRO to have a very good tolerance to drought as well as an efficient use of water. Furthermore the high production is easy to harvest as ZORRO is very resistant to lodging.

High Quality Yield
At 11 trial stations in north Germany, ZORRO showed the highest drymatter yield. In the regrowth there are less stems compared to other varieties.This indicates that ZORRO has a high leaf mass, which secures a high production of a very high quality forage with high digestibility.
