    Achieve is a diploid Italian ryegrass that has been developed for improved winter production and faster establishment. Achieve has later season maturity for high spring yields and is ideal for grazing, silage and hay. It has excellent rust resistance, and its upright growth habit prevents lodging during hay and silage production.

    Suitable for all livestock types and has the ability to recover from heavy grazing

    Agronomy Guidelines
    Paddock preparationsCan be direct drilled or sown into cultivated seedbed. Can be oversown into existing pasture sward. Cultivate seed bed if ground is uneven.
    Sowing depthShallow (10-15mm), using a roller will ensure good seed-soil contact and improve germination rates.
    Weed controlA weed free seedbed allows for better establishment results. The use of herbicides prior to sowing can alleviate competition from weeds. Speak to your local agronomist for herbicide recommendations.
    Fertilizer The use of fertiliser at sowing will improve the establishment and yield of pasture.  
    Grazing management Pasture should not be grazed until adequately anchored (cannot not be pulled out easily). Ryegrass is better suited to rotational grazing, allow plants to re-grow to 2.5-3 leaf stage before grazing again.
