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 preparationsCan be direct drilled or sown into a cultivated seedbed. Can be over-sown 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.
FertiliserThe use of fertiliser at sowing may improve the establishment. The use of phosphorus fertiliser annually may improve the longevity of the stand
Grazing managementPasture should not be grazed until adequately anchored (can not be pulled out easily). Ryegrass is better suited to rotational grazing. Allow plants to re-grow to the 2-3 leaf stage before grazing again.
