Governor

Perennial Ryegrass (Lolium perenne)

  • Genetic legacy
  • Persistent
  • Seasonal growth
  • All rounder

    Governor combines genetics from two of Agriseeds’ most popular previous cultivars to set a new standard for perennial ryegrass persistence. With outstanding survival and excellent DM yield on the shoulders of the season, Governor delivers feed when it’s needed most.

     

    Genetic legacy
    Agriseeds has produced a number of superior ryegrass cultivars over the years and two of them – Bronsyn and Tolosa - have been crossed and selected to create this new cultivar. The persistence of Bronsyn, with the high DM yield and palatability of Tolosa, make Governor ideal for dairy, sheep and beef systems.

     

    Persistent
    Governor has shown outstanding survival through drought, heat and high insect pressure under grazing on farm trials across the country. Fine, densely tillered and diploid, it will become the premium cultivar of choice for persistence.

     

    Seasonal growth

    A key feature is Governor’s ability to grow more DM on the shoulders of the season, in early spring and

    autumn, when it is most needed.

     

    All rounder
    With a +5 days heading date, low aftermath heading (similar to Alto) and better rust resistance than its
    parents, Governor is a reliable, persistent all-rounder.g damage by cattle.
