    Buster is a diploid annual ryegrass with outstanding performance through the season. Buster makes excellent quality hay, due to the fineness of its leaves. Being densely tillered allows it to recover well from heavy grazing. A high level of rust resistance ensures quality is maintained later into the season. A robust choice in tough environments.

    Suitable for all livestock types.

    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.
