Perennial ryegrass - lolium perenne -

Important elements for grassland mixtures

Perennial ryegrass is a versatile plant, well suited both to agricultural use and for growing lawns. It is one of the most important crop plants in the world. It grows best on cool, loamy soils at low altitudes and in coastal areas. Perennial ryegrass is a low-growing grass that is strong enough to be walked on, grows quickly, and produces high overall feed yields. The varieties are also classified by the time of ear development (early, mid-season, late) and whether they are diploid or tetraploid. This species is an excellent choice for resowing because it is so competitive.
