DH-3 Annual Ryegrass

  • Quick establishment
  • High yielding
  • Consistent forage yield throughout season
  • Excellent palatability
  • Good crown rust resistance
  • Improved cold tolerance
  • Good transition back to warm-season grasses

DH-3 diploid annual ryegrass is the result of a polycross between Marshall, Ribeye, and TAM90 annual ryegrasses. DH-3 combines the quick establishment and forage yield of Ribeye, the crown rust resistance of TAM90 and the frost tolerance and consistent yield of Marshall. Tested throughout the South, DH-3 annual ryegrass is proving to be a real contender among new forage annual ryegrasses. DH-3 exhibits high forage yield, excellent seedling vigor, and medium maturity, allowing consistency in forage yield throughout the season with good transition back into warm-season forage grasses.
