Annual ryegrass is a great feedstuff once we hit warmer temperatures in the spring, but lacks growth in the dead of winter. Extend that growth period by including cereal rye with the ryegrass. It grows in cooler temperatures and won’t compete with the ryegrass. Perfect for grazing, as cover crop, or for baleage. Not recommended for dry hay.
A cold-tolerant small grain that grows in cooler weather, providing forage in mid-winter.
Ryegrass produces a massive fibrous root system, tolerates traffic and provides quality yield in mid-spring through early summer.
Drill at 0.5” depth. Calibrate your drill to ensure have an accurate rate. Broadcasting is not recommended due to the size of the cereal rye seed.
|Seeding Rate - Drilled||90-150 lbs/ac|
|Target Harvest Height||8-15" grazing or 15-25" chop|
