Trojan

Perennial Ryegrass (Lolium perenne)

  • Excellent persistence
  • Exceptional winter growth
  • Better feed quality in late spring and summer

    Trojan simplifies your choice. It provides a balance of features previously unseen in a perennial ryegrass: exceptional DM yield across all seasons; excellent persistence; high feed quality, and good resistance to rust and plant pulling. Trojan is medium-fine leaved and densely tillered. It is intermediate in type between Alto (fine leaved and densely tillered) and the more upright medium leaved Arrow.


    Persistence:

    The persistence of Trojan has been excellent in trials in New Zealand
    and South Africa.


    Exceptional winter growth:

    Trojan sets a new standard of performance in high cool season growth, during winter and early spring, with excellent summer and autumn yield.


    Feed quality:

    Trojan is late heading (+16 days) with a low level of aftermath heading, giving it better feed quality in late spring and summer.
