Annual ryegrasses are a one year proposition which establish rapidly and provide excellent quality autumn, winter and early spring growth. Some annual cultivars are bred to provide quick winter feed, flower early and die and are typically suited to winter rainfall and areas with hot, dry summers.
Introducing the Winter Star® II replacement with improved early production, rust tolerance and late season quality
New cost effective option for quick winter feed
Cost effective option for quick winter feed, fast establishing with excellent vigor
A very persistent perennial grass that tolerates moisture stress, moderate soil fertility, set stocking situations as well as sandy and acid soils. Cocksfoot is used to enhance the growth and persistence of permanent pastures in dry summer areas. Moderately slow to establish, it has limited winter growth but does add to the overall feed availability as part of the feed offered. However, it has lower digestibility than most other grasses, so to get the most out of cocksfoot, good grazing management is required. To balance a sheeps diet in summer, consider cocksfoot grown at a low rate with lucerne.

Highly persistent and drought tolerant feed that produces excellent quality through warmer months.
Italian ryegrass is a fast establishing, winter active ryegrass that is more persistent than annual ryegrass with varieties lasting 1-2 years or longer depending on seasonal conditions. Italian ryegrass is most commonly sown for a high quality, short term winter crop that is used to provide multiple grazings in winter and spring.
Fast establishing with very good regrowth into the second season given favourable conditions
It provides exceptional winter and spring growth combined with low aftermath heading, exceptional disease resistance and rapid establishment.
Lush AR37 is quick to establish, has exceptional rust tolerance and provides quality feed into summer, especially under favourable conditions.
A robust and densely tillered short rotation ryegrass with exceptional cool season growth. Very good disease resistance and perfect for oversowing.
A fast establishing Italian tetraploid that holds well through summer and autumn. Speedy establishment that is better suited to warmer environments.
Perennial/long rotation ryegrass is an ideal choice for long term pastures. Perennial ryegrass is an excellent all year round pasture for all grazing systems with rapid establishment, high yields and high nutrient value.
Australian bred under tough conditions, ready to graze in 55-85 days with high tiller density & dry matter production.
Excess is a mid-season flowering diploid perennial ryegrass (+7 days) which has excellent summer, autumn and winter production, low aftermath heading and excellent rust tolerance
Expo is a late flowering diploid perennial ryegrass that has been bred to improve feed quality.
Well known for high winter production and protection against a range of pasture pests
Diploid perennial ryegrass with high tiller density Fine-leaved and low aftermath heading providing excellent feed quality Mid-Late heading (+12 days) Excellent, year round dry matter production
AR1 Endophyte Mid season maturity Excellent rust tolerance Fine leaf excellent rust tolerance
Reward is the next generation high performing tetraploid perennial ryegrass, with Endo5 endophyte, bred for Australian pasture systems.
Somerset SE mid-heading diploid perennial ryegrass
Phalaris is a highly persistent perennial grass that tolerates long periods of dry conditions once established. Phalaris is deep rooted and is ideally suited to heavier soil types throughout southern Australia. Breeding of phalaris has reduced the risk associated with phalaris staggers which is a known issue with older varieties.
Prairie grass is a highly productive perennial grass that has the unique trait of being extremely palatable to the grazing animal at every stage of development – even when in full seed head. Ideally suited to higher fertility soils where there is reliable high annual rainfall and or irrigation available to get the most out of the species. Extremely productive in dry matter produced during the winter months and into early spring.
Tall fescue is a deep-rooted, robust and productive perennial grass. It is more persistent than perennial ryegrass and can tolerate water logging, salinity, Black Beetle attack (with the addition of MaxP® endophyte) and hot dry periods.
Summer active Selected for high resistance to leaf rust Medium leaf softness excellent palatability when grazed correctly Nil endophyte
An outstanding continental tall fescue that offers excellent quality feed over the growing season. Ideally suited to farms looking for quality feed through the summer months.
