ROSSERA

Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne)

Yield, persistence, forage quality - three top scores

Maturity Grouplate
Ploidydiploid

ROSSERA is a very interesting diploid, late variety due to its yield performance, persistence and forage quality. This is proven by official variety testing in the Netherlands, Germany and France. ROSSERA shows good yield results under grazing and cutting. This is combined with a high persistence and good sward density. In the DSV trials ROSSERA was identified as a diploid variety with a high digestibility of the organic matter. Combined with its high dry matter yields in all cuts ROSSERA produces outstanding energy yields per hectare.
