SF HustleAR1

Unique new genetics

SF Hustle is the culmination of a collaboration between Seed Force, its European shareholder RAGT and R2n the research arm of RAGT. It is a new perennial ryegrass with the strong cool season activity of NZ bred material, the persistence and warm season quality from European material and hardiness for the summer dry conditions experienced in Australia.

Agronomic features:
  • Diploid perennial ryegrass
    Dense tillering for improved persistence

  • High winter activity
    More feed when it is needed

  • Excellent feed quality
    Outstanding animal performance

  • Good disease resistance
    Increased palatability by stock
