Italian Ryegrass

Italian Ryegrass is a fast-growing biennial ryegrass that offers an excellent combination of yield and quality in the seeding year. It is considered an annual in the Upper Midwest because it usually winterkills. It works well as a cover crop for new alfalfa seedings, as a green manure, or as emergency feed. Italian Ryegrass thrives in all kinds of soils. Italian Ryegrass has superior forage quality over Annual Ryegrass and will usually not head out in the seeding year unless planted very early.
