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.
