Ryegrass, Italian Ryegrass



Rainfall Min:


Sowing Rate:




    Yambuk diploid Italian ryegrass has been developed for exceptional winter and spring production. The late heading makes it suitable for longer growing seasons and is ideal for producing high quality hay and silage.

    The fine diploid leaves make it a great option for heavier grazing systems.

    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 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.
    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 (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.
