Tetraploid Annual Ryegrass Seed
The early ryegrass gets the forage
EarlyPloid is the earliest forage-producing tetraploid ryegrass available commercially. Just in time, it sprouts to save cattle and pasture from the grip of winter, or offer up one last silage harvest before corn goes in the ground.
An early maturing variety, Earlyploid still produces big yields. Earlyploid quits earlier than others, giving dairies the opportunity to harvest the ryegrass and plant another forage crop behind it in the spring.
This large-seeded, upright and early maturing annual ryegrass resists disease like a steer resists snuggles. And its superior cold tolerance allows it to be grown for cool-season forage in the southern annual ryegrass region of the U.S. For the first-available forage, EarlyPloid is your first choice.
