Ceres One50 - Diploid Perennial Ryegrass
(Lolium perenne L.)
The only perennial ryegrass to survive the summer in Irwin Hunter & Co irrigation trials at Waroona in 2009
One50 Diploid Perennial Ryegrass is a new generation late heading perennial
ryegrass. “Bred from elite genetics from New Zealand and North West Spain,
ONE50 was adapted for the unique climatic conditions Australian farmers
face” quotes Alan Stewart, Plant Breeder.
One50 Diploid Perennial Ryegrass has outstanding dry matter production and
its yield potential is best realised in fertile, productive conditions; One50
Diploid Perennial Ryegrass is ideal for producing high quality feed for silage
Due to One50’s late heading characteristics, it makes late spring and early
summer pasture management easier. It maintains vegetative leaf production
during this time; this contrasts with most early to mid-heading ryegrasses
which require good grazing management to control seed head production
through this period.
Ceres One50 key attributes:
- Excellent establishment vigour with high disease resistance.
- 21 days later flowering than Nui providing high quality late spring feed.
- Persistent high yielding variety where sown under irrigation and good nutrition and pasture management systems.
