Ascend Tetraploid Annual Ryegrass has been selected for its exceptional seedling vigour because we know how important it is having feed as soon as possible after sowing. This will then improve the amount of feed grown during the winter period which is a time when feed can be the most valuable. This has been one of the main focuses when breeding for a new annual ryegrass.
Another key focus has been to select for increased rust tolerance so that the feed quality throughout the growing season is high, regardless of what it will be used for; whether it be grazing, hay or silage. When you are growing feed, it is important that it is the highest quality it can be. As a tetraploid Ascend has proven animal utilisation benefits.
