Forage Seed Italian Ryegrass
Epic Italian Ryegrass Blend is a unique blend of diploids and tetraploid Italian ryegrass varieties. Combining tetraploid and diploid varieties maximizes the advantages each has to offer. The tetraploid provides high dry matter production, disease resistance to crown rust and improved palatability. The diploid is added for better persistence under grazing and improved traffic tolerance. The tetraploid also has improved dry matter production and winter hardiness compared to older cultivars. In regions with moderate climates, Epic Italian Ryegrass will be a biannual forage.
