Italian ryegrass MELDUO, d.


Italian ryegrass


The queen of hay

For many years the breeding of tetraploid varieties was in the foreground, but lately diploid varieties have become more attractive. The new diploid variety MELDUO was approved because of the high total yields and the consistent spreading of yields. In comparison to other diploid varieties MELDUO has a high leaf health. Because of its high level of stability, it is predestined for the production of hay.
