Perennial Ryegrass

(Lolium Perenne)

Perennial Ryegrass is a long-lived, non-creeping, cool-season bunchgrass. Perennial ryegrass originated in southern Europe, north Africa, and southwest Asia. It is commonly used for hay and pasture in the temperate areas of the U.S. It is less winter hardy than certain other forage species.

Perennial Ryegrass is also used as a component for pasture mixtures. Seeded alone or with other species, it provides high-quality forage for grazing. It is normally seeded at a depth of 1.3 cm (½ in.).
