SF Accelerate 2
SF Accelerate 2 is a new highly winter active Italian ryegrass, developed in Europe from a number of highly successful Australian and New Zealand bred varieties. With excellent seedling vigour, it suitable for sowing into either clean paddocks or over-sowing into sub-tropical pastures including setaria and kikuyu.
SF Accelerate 2 has similar maturity to SF Accelerate, but has reduced aftermath heading and much improved disease resistance.
The background material was artificially inoculated and heavily screened for improved tolerance to crown rust and bacterial wilt. Only those lines showing strong resistance were then re-combined into the final product. SF Accelerate 2 also has good tolerance to stem rust.
