Lolium perenne Perennial Ryegrass Variety Chart
Perennial Ryegrass is the most widely grown cool season forage grass in the world. In the past, perennial ryegrass use in North America was limited because existing varieties were only adapted to regions with mild climates. In the last few years, Barenbrug has successfully introduced more productive and more persistent varieties into North America.
Perennial ryegrass is persistent if soil fertility is high. It also tolerates intensive grazing and cutting, re-growing quickly after defoliation. Since different varieties exhibit a wide range of characteristics such as maturity, winter-hardiness, disease resistance, digestibility, dry-matter production and persistency, perennial ryegrass fulfills the needs of many different farming systems. Careful management and variety selection ensure the best results.
Perennial ryegrass is ideal for making high quality grass silage, cut and carry and grazing. It can also be planted with alfalfa.
Barenbrug offers straight perennial ryegrass varieties as well as blends. The benefit of blends is their wider adaptability in different areas. In past years, these blends have proven their value to US farmers and ranchers.
Bargala is a high yielding tetraploid variety with excellent first cut and annual dry-matter yields. It has excellent crown rust resistance and palatability. Bargala is earlier maturing than Remington. Bargala is a component of Tetra-Plus and BG-24T.
