Violet long-rotation tetraploid perennial ryegrass has been developed for high winter and spring production, consistent late-season yields, and strong rust resistance.

Violet is a great option for producers in higher rainfall regions that require high dry matter production throughout the entire growing season.

Suitable for sheep, beef and dairy.

AGRONOMY GUIDELINES
Paddock preparationsCan be direct drilled or sown into a cultivated seedbed. Can be over-sown into existing pasture sward. Cultivate 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.
