Following the successful introduction of Hy-Energy Brand Tetraploid Annual Ryegrass, Hytest Seeds announces that supplies will be expanded for the 2002-2003 planting season.

Hy-Energy annual ryegrass offers beef and dairy producers a high yielding, highly palatable forage that provides a two- to three-week longer grazing period than other diploid and tetraploid types, including Gulf.

Ideal for extended winter grazing, Hy-Energy annual ryegrass produces high yields with aggressive forage growth, excellent palatability and high crude protein levels. This “next generation” tetraploid also produces a larger leaf mass than other diploid and tetraploid types, with excellent rust resistance, vigor, and very good heat and cold tolerance characteristics.

Adapted for over-seeding pastures in Southern and Mid-South areas from eastern Texas to the East Coast, Hy-Energy brand annual ryegrass is an excellent variety suited for rotational and continuous grazing, as well as for hay and haylage production.
