Hypa tetraploid hybrid ryegrass has been selected for high dry matter yields over late winter to mid spring.
Its mid-late maturity makes it a suitable choice for most environments. Its breeding background makes it more persistent than other hybrid ryegrasses in drier conditions.
Hypa displays excellent rust resistance. Suitable for sheep, beef and dairy.
|Paddock preparations||Can be direct drilled or sown into a cultivated seedbed. Can be over sown into existing pasture sward. Cultivate seed bed if ground is uneven.|
|Sowing depth||Shallow (10-15mm). Using a roller will ensure good seed-soil contact and improve germination rates.|
|Weed control||A 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.|
|Fertiliser||The use of fertiliser at sowing may improve the establishment. The use of phosphorus fertiliser annually may improve the longevity of the stand|
|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.|
