aSTEROID-RED-Type

Asteroid is a unique Australian bred ryegrass variety designed to improve winter herbage yield and maintain long season production.

  • Higher winter dry matter yields
  • Later season growth
  • Improve rust resistance from Northern NSW breeding.
  • Heat tolerant
  • Selected for faster emergence vigour to help with early sowing in unreliable Autumn breaks.
  • Long leaf for extra dry matter yield.
