PERENNIAL RYEGRASS OVERVIEW
Perennial ryegrass/long rotation ryegrass (Lolium perenne) is an ideal choice for long term pastures – delivering all year round pasture for all grazing systems with rapid establishment, high yields and high nutrient value.
Perennial ryegrass, the mainstay of pasture-based dairy farming in southern Australia, is relatively easy and quick to establish and tolerates a range of management practices – which gives it flexibility in most pasture systems.
As a foundation to permanent pasture mixes, perennial ryegrass combines well with a range of legumes, including clover. It is recommended that clovers are added when sowing a new pasture of perennial ryegrass as this will aid in available nitrogen which will feed the ryegrass throughout the growing season. Clovers also offer higher levels or protein and energy than most perennial ryegrasses and when in a mix, increase the quality of feed being offered to animals.
