Hybrid Ryegrass

Hybrid ryegrasses are a cross between perennial and Italian ryegrass. Varieties typically last for 2-3 years or longer depending on environmental conditions. Hybrid ryegrasses will have a differing proportion of perennial or Italian in their breeding background which will also determine persistence. A long rotation hybrid will have a higher perennial proportion and a short rotation hybrid will have a higher Italian proportion.
