Featured Perennial Ryegrass

Forage Big Green Tetraploid Perennial Ryegrass

A highly palatable, high quality, nutritious livestock forage.

  • Exceptionally palatable
  • Easily Established
  • Excellent Nutritional Value
  • Recovers Rapidly from Heavy Grazing
  • Winterhardy
  • Zero Endophyte

Best time to plant seed:

Seed early spring or late summer/early fall. Fall plant no later than 45-60 days before first killing frost. Versatile, easy to establish, disease resistant, deep dense rooted cool season grass. 

Planting instructions:

  • Plant 20 to 25 pounds per acre for hay and pasture production. Increase seeding rate up to 25% for no-till seeding and up to 50% for broadcast seeding or poor planting conditions. Cut seeding rate approximately in half when planting with alfalfa or clover mix.
  • Big Green is one of the easiest grasses to establish. It may be sown on clean-burned stubble, prepared or unprepared seedbed. Big Green will tolerate wetter soil conditions. 
  • When seeding into prepared seedbed, lime and fertilized according to a soil test and control weeds for best results. At planting, applying 35-40 lbs/acre of nitrogen fertilizer is recommended to ensure good establishment.
  • In prepared seedbed, seed should be covered with ¼ to ½ inch of soil with either drag chains behind the seed drill or using a drag harrow for covering broadcast seeding.
  • Pulling a cultipacker or light roller over the field after seeding will give good seed-to-soil contact and promote more vigorous seedling growth.

Big Green mixes well with Bashaw Tetraploid Annual Ryegrass and other legumes and grasses for quality hay, pasture or haylage. Produces good Spring and Fall growth.

Additional tips:

  • Big Green will quickly develop a strong root system and under good conditions will provide grazing in 90 days or less.
  • Big Green and Big Green legume mixtures have high yield potentials and will respond well to higher levels of fertilizer and lime use.
  • To enhance production of Big Green in subsequent years, a spring application of 50 lbs/acre of nitrogen fertilizer is recommended to promote early growth, followed by periodic applications of 30-40 lbs/acre timed with rainfall or irrigation.
