Annual ryegrasses - lolium multiflorum -

for growing as main crop and catch crop

Annual ryegrass is a member of the short-lived ryegrass family and puts out shoots in the year of sowing.
Annual ryegrasses are bred for three uses:

  1. for growing as a catch crop after the cereal harvest
  2. as an annual to produce field fodder, to be cut several times in the year and in mixtures with Italian ryegrass
  3. for use in biogas plants Diploid and tetraploid varieties have been bred. The annual ryegrass ANDREA is particularly suitable as a "nurse grass" when establishing permanent grassland and for oversowing on badly damaged grassland.
