Annual Ryegrass for Winter Hardy Cover Crop and Overseeding Pasture
Annual ryegrass is rapidly growing in popularity for use as a cover crop in the Midwestern states. It has long been favored as a winter-active companion crop in the Southern U.S., and for seeding into dormant warm-season forages. Lonestar, an improved diploid annual ryegrass variety, was bred for excellent cold tolerance, high level of disease resistance, seedling vigor and rapid forage growth.
