Perennial ryegrass

Matrix

diploid perennial ryegrass

Matrix is a proven high yielding, persistent late heading diploid perennial ryegrass. It has proven to be one of the highest yielding cultivars in trials over the past decade, and the most persistent in many sites.

It has very late heading ensuring that high quality feed is maintained longer into spring and summer for improved livestock performance.

Matrix is an ideal inclusion into sheep, beef and dairy mixes where yield, quality and persistence are all important.
