Italian ryegrass

Lolium multiflorum ssp. italicum


Italian ryegrass is a fast-growing, medium-sized grass which grows in tussocks over several years and is mainly used for forage cultivation. Italian ryegrass differs from perennial ryegrass mainly in terms of its higher dry matter yields, greater height and lower persistence. Under ideal conditions it can be cropped up to six times a year. The rapid growth of Italian ryegrass makes it possible to get a 2-4 week edge over grasslands when cultivated on arable soils with sufficient water supply, with 2-3 more cuts per year. An extra cut for feed can be obtained for the autumn if sown in good time after harvesting the main crop.
