An annual ryegrass with Astounding seedling vigour and winter growth

  • Bred and grown in Australia for local conditions, Astound has been trialled in a range of locations across Australia with tremendous results.
  • Astound’s background breeding has resulted in a pasture which is fast out of the ground with exceptional winter production and early spring growth.
  • It is a large seeded pasture variety showing exceptional vigour in variable sowing conditions. It is ideal for over-sowing or mulching into existing pastures.
  • A high value silage and hay variety. Astound’s densely tillered broadleaves provide high quality bulk feed with quick recovery from grazing.
  • Investing in Astound will not only grow you extra feed, it is an investment in Australian pasture research and development and Australian seed producers.
  • Astound is a brilliant performer against other commercial and common varieties in a wide range of environments.
