Option for resistant ryegrass management control
Tetrone originated from the same source of germplasm as the well known Tetila ryegrass (i.e. the Western Wolths region of Holland).
The germplasm is the true annual form of Italian Ryegrass. Tetrone is strictly annual and has high levels of winter production, particularly when planted early.
Tetrone has later maturity than Tetila and consequently higher nutritive value (crude protein and metabolisable energy) for longer into spring. Tetrone may be used for grazing, silage and hay production.
Tetrone is also suitable for direct drilling into existing pastures due to its quick to establishment. It is extremely frost resistant and has excellent cool season growth making great winter feed.
