Expo diploid perennial ryegrass is a densely tillered, late flowering perennial ryegrass bred to deliver high quality feed throughout the year. Available with AR37 or AR1 endophyte, Expo perennial ryegrass can be utilised in both rotational and set-stocking grazing systems with soils that have medium to high soil fertility.
Data are the mean of three completed trials located in Waikato (1) and Canterbury (2).
Expo AR1 produced a significantly higer yield than Aberdart AR1 during establishment and in Winter and Autumn, but differences were not significant in spring, summer and total yield. 2006-2012.
|Expo: 21 days later than Nui|
Expo perennial ryegrass can be sown at 15-25 kg/ha with Superstrike treated clover.
Expo perennial ryegrass is also suitable for long term hard grazing/set stocking in addition to rotational grazing.
Expo perennial ryegrass combines well with other components of a pasture mix (e.g. short rotation ryegrass, cocksfoot, Grasslands Puna II chicory and clover).
Nick Browning has been using Expo for 5 years. Nick says “Expo is so dense it will fight well and keep the Kikuyu out. In a drought it stays green and bounces back quick after rain. The cows love it and after a few days grazing we notice a lift in their production.”
