Italian Ryegrass Melpush

It is a variety of recent registration and selected to obtain a high forage production. It produces a forage with high leafiness, high digestibility,
and excellent resistance to rust. When sown early at the end of summer, Melpush will allow for abundant cutting in autumn or can be intensively grazed, without compromising its vegetative-productive cycle in spring. In late autumn sowing, due to its alternative profile, it allows for an early first cut. At spring sowing, Melpush is explosive and guarantees at least 2 cuts before summer dryness. It is also an ideal solution for restoring perennial stable meadows.
