TetraSweet Perennial Ryegrass (Tetraploid)

    Description

    Perennial Ryegrass is an extremely palatable cool season perennial forage source. While ryegrass is more palatable than most other perennial grasses, it lacks heat and drought tolerance. Ryegrass slows doing during the summer and will not be as productive compared to grasses like fescue. This grass is best used in mild climates where the plants won’t receive as much weather stress from heat, cold or drought.
