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.
The speed of establishment of Concord® II allows for greater flexibility of the variety, allowing it to be used in many more situations than its predecessor. While traditional autumn sowing is the primary use of Concord® II, its speed of establishment allows it to be used successfully in over-sowing situations, pugged pasture recovery programmes, spring sowing where irrigation is available or where Italians have been used in a more annual sowing programme.
When used in an autumn sowing, the increased growth through the winter months is where Concord® II will return the greatest benefits to your farming situation by delivering excellent feed volumes to support grazing animals.
Another improvement that has been made with Concord® II is increased second year production which has been a trait that other Italian ryegrasses, coming to the market seem to have lost over the past few years.
