Economical and high animal output

Rely is a versatile diploid perennial ryegrass with fine leaves and dense tillers bred to cater for a wide range of environments. Rely can tolerate lower fertility and periods of set stocking. Only available with AR1 endophyte, Rely delivers better animal performance compared to Victorian ryegrass.

Rely perennial ryegrass combines well with other components of a pasture mix (e.g. short rotation ryegrass, cocksfoot, Grasslands Puna II chicory and clover).

Sowing and establishment

Rely perennial ryegrass can be sown at 15-25 kg/ha with Superstrike® treated clover.

Sowing depth is important as is the seed to soil contact, given that Platform AR37 is a small seed. Ensure that the depth of sowing is between 5 and 15mm for optimum establishment rate and early vigour. If the seed is sown too deep, then the seed will be delayed in its establishment which then has an impact on other important management decisions such as weed control and timing, insect pest management and grazing timing.
