Bestfor Tetraploid Ryegrass

Bestfor Plus is a "Lolium Hybridum", meaning that it grows fast like an annual or Italian ryegrass, but lasts longer than one year (usually 2-3 years). Typically Lolium Hybridums start thinning out rapidly after the third year. Bestfor Plus is a tetraploid, meaning it has larger leaves and is more upright and open in its growth, making it useful for both grazing and mechanical harvesting. It is also very high in sugar content and considered a "high energy" forage. Bestfor Plus's impressive digestibility levels encourage rapid weight gain on any livestock.
