Due to its optimal fodder value, perennial ryegrass is an important component of many meadows and pastures. It is one of the most important cultivated grasses throughout the world. Perennial ryegrass does well when cultivated in moist, loamy soil, in lowland sites and in coastal areas. Perennial ryegrass is very tolerant of foot traffic as an undergrass, it emerges the fastest and its overall fodder yield is high. The varieties are also differentiated according to the time of ear emergence (early, intermediate, late) and the ploidy (diploid or tetraploid). Due to the high degree of competitiveness, this species is excellently suited for reseeding.
