Amazon T is a tetraploid annual ryegrass with high winter and early spring yields. Good heat tolerance allows it to be sown early in Autumn. It will maintain quality into spring due to its strong rust resistance. Ideal for grazing but also a quality hay or silage option. Due to its earlier heading date, it is ideal for use in a summer forage crop rotation.


Suitable for all livestock types.

Agronomy Guidelines
Paddock preparationsCan be direct drilled or sown into a cultivated seedbed. Can be oversown into existing pasture sward. Cultivate the seed bed if the 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 (can not be pulled out easily). Ryegrass is better suited to rotational grazing, allowing plants to re-grow to the 2-3 leaf stage before grazing again.
