Annual Ryegrass

SF Flyer

diploid annual ryegrass

SF Flyer is a diploid annual ryegrass with early season flowering. It is best suited to early autumn sowing in lower rainfall regions or where its use for winter feed and early fodder can be followed by sowing a summer fodder crop.

It has consistently produced around 7% more feed than Tetila types at a 30% lower seeding rate. SF Flyer can provide a good low cost alternative to Wimmera ryegrass or Tetila types./p>
