Both Perennial and Annual Rye grass can provide a green winter lawn overseeded on warm season grasses that go dormant in the fall/winter. Ryegrass planted
on newly seeded lawns of cool and warm season grasses ryegrass acts as an erosion barrier while the permanent lawn develops. Ryegrass also provides any area with an almost "instant" green
coverage. This green coverage is the chief purpose for planting annual ryegrass. Ryegrass clippings mown and left on the developing lawn as it grows, providing extra nutrients as the
Bright green, fast growing, and prolific; the ryegrasses do much for lawns by adding contrasting color to early spring flowers, trees and shrubs as well as
nutrients. Annual Ryegrass Information
Annual Rye grass is one of the most popular seeds sold for lawn and pasture purposes and is planted all over the world on it's own and in numerous grass seed mixtures. The
adaptability of this cool season grass to many soils and climates coupled with fast germination and prolific growing rates make annual ryegrass an important grass type in establishing
thousands of lawns and pastures in all but the hottest of planting zones.
Annual ryegrass is exceptionally useful as a fill-in grass when planted with slower growing permanent lawns. Ideally suited for short term seasonal use in
areas reaching below the transition zone, annual ryegrass is a great fill-in to create green grass on new grass areas. In warmer regions, ryegrass lawns may require watering, fertilization
and more frequent mowing.
Annual Ryegrass is a cool season grass generally used as a temporary planting for overseeding warm or cool season grasses. Its uses are many, including
temporary pastures, green manure, temporary coverage for erosion control, short term use on reclamation sites, parks, new lawns, and along highway shoulders. Annual ryegrass
may be seeded with other grass mixtures, legumes, clovers and small grains. Annual Ryegrass is fast germinating, quick growing and requires low to medium fertilization. Annual Rye Grass Is Eco-Friendly
Annual Ryegrass is a compatible growing medium when planted with any vegetation where needed.
Annual ryegrass is very beneficial to areas that are infected with nematodes which are almost impossible to get rid of except by heavy chemical control. A natural and inexpensive
resolution for this infestation problem, annual ryegrass is ecologically friendly. Yearly planting of this ryegrass seed ahead, behind, or with crops known to be a nematode favorite would
certainly be cost effective.
Annual ryegrass is easily removed from any area through heavy grazing, mowing or turning under before the seeding stage.
non-aggressive, vigorous grower, furnishes nutrients back to the soil, forms an erosion soil basis for stability, highly digestible, beautiful color, dies off when you need it to without
chemicals - makes annual ryegrass a winner!
Ryegrass is one of the few "throw and grow" seeds that can be sown without the hassle of tilling, scarifying, or digging into the soil and destroying any of the
permanent ground covers already in place. Plus if the weather helps out by raining just before sowing then you practically have it made. Otherwise watering the yard and applying
fertilizer before or after sowing are the main two steps for quickest establishment. Note that the trick to sowing any seed is to get an even coverage in conjunction to sowing the correct
amount to achieve an even lawn appearance as the grass fills in. And to get the seeds to make "soil contact" for germination to occur.
One of the best ways to get rid of those winter "
" is a spot of annual ryegrass " blues green" and some
early spring bulbs. Beautiful mental picture with very little costs! Perennial Rye Grass Information
Perennial Ryegrass lawns are one of the best lower maintenance lawns of the cool season grasses. This is one of the toughest and most traffic tolerant turf
covers that can be grown. Ryegrass is noted for quick germination, shiny green color, fine texture (newer turf type varieties) and dense forming sod. High disease and insect resistance
helps to make perennial ryegrass one of the leading choices for lawn and athletic covers in the cooler regions of North America. Perennial ryegrass is planted as permanent turf or lawn
grass and to overseed warm season grasses while they are in winter dormancy.
Perennial ryegrass seed is also mixed with other cool season grasses to provide more density to the dominate grass in the mixture. Perennial ryegrass seed
is often added to Kentucky bluegrass seed to add strength and give bluegrass time to repair while the perennial ryegrass is in full growth. These two grass species can be mown at the same
height and retain a sod density for which both are well known. Although bluegrass may require more fertilizer, the perennial ryegrass will respond to additional amounts without any damage. Turf Quality Perennial Ryegrass Seed Blends
Perennial Ryegrass seed blends
such as the Champion GQ, Clubhouse GQ or Pennington's Perennial Rye Grass Blend
are widely planted and are excellent choices for lawns in the cooler
regions of the USA. They are also popular with Turf Agronomists for overseeding of quality Bermuda lawns, golf areas and sports fields in more Southern state locations during the winter
months. Most Golf Course greens today are overseeded with Perennial Ryegrass for primary winter cover. Note: Centipede lawns should NOT be overseeded with Perennial Ryegrass, but
instead use Annual Ryegrass. GRASS

Annual Ryegrass For Pasture & Farm Use
Annual ryegrass certainly must be considered a staple
in the farming and ranching business. Ryegrass is used in so many useful ways to
benefit pastures or farm lands -- providing quick growing short season forage, hay,
green chop, green manures, erosion control, weed control, and so much more.

Another popular annual ryegrass,
Annual, is planted as 'row crops' in agricultural fields from berry fields to corn fields as well as orchards. Annual ryegrass is row cropped
with all kinds of crops to keep down weeds and provide early coverage, shade for some
crops, green fertilizer when mown and returned to the soil, wildlife crops, and when
left to maturity it will partially reseed for the next season -- although not as dense as the first year of planting. Do Not Plant Ryegrasses Developed For Lawn Use In Pastures!
Due to the potential for Ryegrasses in pastures
to have the possibility of producing higher than desirable Endophyte production of toxins, you should only plant ryegrasses that have a known history of safe use for forages such as
Passerel ryegrass seed or Gulf Annual ryegrass seed. Some of the newer
improved perennial ryegrass varieties for lawns often contain
Endophytes and are NOT suitable or recommended for pasture
use. Plant only forage type ryegrass varieties for pastures. Perennial Ryegrasses For Pastures
. A valuable winter and spring grazing crop that can be overseeded
onto additional forages or used alone lengthening the pasture season. A fast growing
multi-use forage crop requiring minimal tillage and competitive enough to make a place for
itself. A compact growing habit reinforces the ground and gives a perfect erosion base for
pastures with heavy traffic or in the case of heavy rains or snow meltdown. Ryegrass helps
keep the livestock out of the mud as much as possible. PERENNIAL RYEGRASS PASTURES are highly digestible and a
favorite of all grazing animals
Perennial ryegrass is fast germinating, grows prolifically, and can be grazed heavily. Many varieties have been developed and are in "prescription" mixes or in stand alone crops for complete
pasture and hay production. The ryegrasses are well known for being companion grasses in
mixes of fescue, clovers, timothy, orchard grass and many other pasture crops. The
ryegrass is usually first to germinate and grow in while the others are developing.
Perennial rye is used to overseed many warmer season pastures that may go dormant or are
growing slower due to cooler temperatures. This is one of the most diversified grasses
used in the forage industry for permanent and semi-permanent pastures. How To Overseed With Ryegrass
OVERSEEDING - Since annual and perennial ryegrasses are
used in overseeding many areas the best stands achieved are still the ones with a small amount of
input. Rake or remove all debris (this helps scratch the soil for better soil contact),
fertilize as suggested (slow release is actually the best and easiest), water lightly (if possible) before seeding evenly at the heaviest rate recommended, rake again if
possible and lightly mist to keep seeds in place. Do not use excessive force as this will move seeds
into uneven clumps. Watering helps increase germinating process.
