BG-24T Ryegrass blend

BG-24T is a unique, innovative blend of early and intermediate maturing diploid and tetraploid perennial ryegrass varieties.

Research by Barenbrug USA has shown that under high summer temperatures, early and intermediate maturing varieties perform better than very late maturing varieties. These new varieties have better disease tolerance and they perform better in the extreme environmental conditions experienced in cool season grass growing regions of United States. BG-24T consists of mainly diploid perennial ryegrass varieties which provide a dense stand, along with some tetraploid perennial ryegrass which improve the overall palatability and productivity of the grass field.

Perennial Ryegrass is the most widely grown cool season forage grass in the world. In the past, perennial ryegrass use in North America was limited because existing varieties were only adapted to regions with mild climates. Barenbrug has successfully introduced more productive and more persistent varieties into North America.
