Closeup of annual ryegrass plants

Annual Ryegrass

Described as the King of Annuals, this forage produces tremendous yields mid-spring through early summer. A high sugar crop, it is excellent for putting gain on livestock who may have lost condition over the winter. Annual ryegrass can be broadcast or drilled, tolerates traffic, and is excellent for grazing, baleage, or dry hay. Although it has inconsistent fall growth, it produces an incredible amount of root mass in a limited timeframe, contributing greatly to soil organic matter production, and it tolerates wet feet better than most winter annuals.
