The Australian tetraploid bred for the Australian environment

  • Will persist into a 2nd year in temperate cool climate regions and areas of higher rainfall
  • Its higher water soluble carbohydrates help it tolerate hotter temperatures at sowing and at the end of the season
  • A finer leafed tetraploid allows increased feed utilisation and recovery from heavy grazing
  • Ideal for areas where winter waterlogging occurs
  • Selected for its fast seedling emergence and exceptional seedling vigour assisting survival during periods when unreliable autumn breaks occur
  • Excellent rust resistance produces high quality grazing feed in the warmer months for increased utilisation by stock
