diploid italian ryegrass
SF Accelerate is a diploid Italian ryegrass developed from four components and selected for high forage yields with rapid recovery after grazing. It is a late season variety flowering some 12 days later than Tetila types, and similar to Crusader.
It has good cool season production, but also excellent summer production and second year recovery. SF Accelerate has improved feed quality compared to other commercial diploid cultivars - consistently lower NDF and higher ME levels throughout the growing season.
