Add hybrid vigour to your Italian ryegrass system

Maverick GII is a diploid short rotation ryegrass that offers improved growing performance over standard short term ryegrasses. This style of grass is best suited to situations where high winter production is required along with late season growth and quality.

Sowing and establishment

Maverick GII short rotation ryegrass can be sown at 15-25 kg/ha as a pure sward with Superstrike® treated clover, or added to a perennial pasture mix at 4-7 kg/ha. In an undersowing situation, sow Superstrike® treated seed at 10-15 kg/ha.

Grazing management

Maverick GII short rotation ryegrass is best suited to rotational grazing. For best persistence, avoid hard grazing over summer.
