Diamond T was first trialled in 2009 and each year has consistently been one of the fastest establishing varieties. In our trials it has produced the most dry matter of any other annual or Italian ryegrass at the first 2-4 harvests.
Seedling vigour is excellent and being a tetraploid means it’s fast establishing, but Diamond T has shown that it is able to produce large amounts of quality forage when feed is most important.
Diamond T would suit producers who require a cost effective option for high quality, quick winter feed, early silage and hay; or want to prepare their paddock for a summer crop. It is also very valuable for over-sowing dormant or deteriorating winter pastures to boost and maximise feed availability.
