Displaying all the required attributes of a high quality diploid Italian ryegrass Supercruise has the endurance to go the distance. If you are looking for a cost effective short term pasture or a reliable option for undersowing into worn out perennial pastures Supercruise is the grass for you.
Supercruise Italian ryegrass may be used as a specialist feed sown at a minimum of 18 kg/ha or undersown into existing pasture at a minimum of 10-15 kg/ha with Superstrike treated seed to improve establishment.

Daniel has used Supercruise as a 'forage crop' to provide bulk-quality feed on the main station and run-off block on the Taieri. As a crop it is allowing 12-24 months feed while allowing the opportunity to clean up weed issues for lucerne and permanent pasture. The run-off block is primarily for finishing cattle/silage and the Supercruise on the station is for all stock.
