Home grown feed options are available to help maximise the value and return from your pasture system, and minimise the requirement for purchased fodder to support stock through the winter season.
Introducing the Winter Star® II replacement
Ascend is the new winter star of the annual tetraploid ryegrasses for Australia. Winter Star® and Winter Star® II have long been leading annual ryegrasses for farmers all over Australia, so it is exciting to have a new and improved model coming to the market in 2018.
Exceptional seedling vigour
Improved early winter production
High rust tolerance
Maintains quality late into the season
Offers real flexibility
Densely tillered and fine leaved compared to Winter Star II
The versatile perennial all-rounder
Reward is a new generation tetraploid perennial ryegrass with Endo5 endophyte bred for the Australian farmer.
Reward is ideally suited to a broad range of farming systems including sheep, beef and dairy, making it a great all-round option. It is late maturing which means high quality feed for longer, especially at times when feed is needed most.
Excellent persistence and dry matter production
Improved rust tolerance
Endo5 endophyte for broad spectrum pest control
No Lolitrem B (the main toxin that causes ryegrass staggers)
Concord® II is an outstanding Italian ryegrass with exceptional speed of establishment. It delivers increased winter production and solid seasonal dry matter production with the ability to carry through to the second year where conditions allow.
Concord® II is the next generation Concord®, which was the first proprietory ryegrass released in Australia by PGG Wrightson Seeds.
Exceptionally fast to establish
Even growth over the season
Regrowth into the second season is very good, given favourable conditions
Excellent disease resistance
Remarkable performance and quality
Feast® II tetraploid Italian ryegrass has set the benchmark for quality and production in the Italian ryegrass market for the past decade. It provides exceptional winter and spring growth combined with low aftermath heading. Feast® II offers farmers an excellent return on investment achieved by multiple grazing opportunities during cooler months as well as a high quality hay and silage later in the season.
Easily established by oversowing
Exceptional disease resistance
Outstanding summer quality
