Forage Seed Italian Ryegrass

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