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. It also produces an incredible amount of root mass in a limited timeframe, contributing greatly to soil organic matter production.
