The Pennington Passerel Plus Annual Ryegrass 50 lbs. (29661) is a cool season annual grass that is primarily utilized for utmost quality grazing, hay or silage. It is special formulated for an improved rust resistance, cold tolerance and higher yields. Passerel Plus is made of total digestible nutrients and crude protein. It is well productive in late spring and it can be sod-seeded into warm season perennial pasture for spring and winter forage production. Also, it showcases high quality forage for all kinds of livestock especially for growing cattle.
The Passerel Plus Annual Ryegrass is considered as a top-tier performer in university trials across the Southeast and can out-yield other ryegrass varieties by over 1,000 pounds per acre. Compared to purchased hay, Passerel Plus can save 60 percent on your feed bill, and can also save 50 percent over hay harvested on your own land. 1,000 pounds more is like getting an extra round bale per acre and that's worth over $50. Passerel Plus is late maturing, which means the grazing will be high quality for longer, further boosting gains.

Ryegrass responds well to high rates of nitrogen fertilizer. Highest yields are obtained with split applications over the growing season totaling 100-150 lbs. nitrogen per acre. Begin grazing when forage growth reaches 6-8 inches in height and roots are fully anchored in the ground. Do not graze below a height of 3 in the fall and winter. Allow re-growth to reach a height of 6 to 10 inches before grazing again. Use light rotational grazing in the fall and winter with heavier rotational or continuous grazing in the spring and early summer. For hay or silage, harvest at the boot stage of maturity for highest quality.
