24 SEVEN

Perennial Ryegrass
Good winter growth with extended spring feed quality

24 SEVEN is a very late-heading diploid perennial ryegrass that has unusually strong cool-season growth for such a late heading date this extends through to a period of high energy and protein pasture in late spring by almost one month.  Farmers (and their animals) can now “have their cake, and eat it too”! 24 SEVEN has been shown to suit all regions of New Zealand.

24 Seven is available with the novel endophyte (EDGE) which  has good insect tolerance and persistence it does not cause ryegrass staggers and does not affect animal performance.

Sow rate: 18-20 kg/ha with clovers and herbs

Description

DFL 24 SEVEN

24SevenEdge is a new release from DLF Seeds New Zealand plant breeders, and is suited to all regions of New Zealand.  The novel endophyte Edge provides this grass with protection from black beetle, Argentine stem weevil (ASW), pasture mealy bug and root aphid, without affecting animal production or health.
The production of 24Seven has been tested in several trials (4 completed, 10 current) across the country, in which 24Seven has never been beaten by other commercial cultivars.  It also has unusually strong cool-season growth for such a late heading date (see graph below).  24Seven therefore breaks the old dilemma created from late heading ryegrasses having less early-spring growth than mid-heading cultivars.
24Seven also produces stems and flower heads 24 days later than standard date cultivars, so it extends the period of high energy and protein pasture in late spring by almost one month.  Farmers (and their animals) can now “have their cake, and eat it too”!
