Attain Annual Tetraploid Ryegrass seed is another seed breeding
success story from the University of Florida. This tetraploid ryegrass is a 'sister' variety to the popular Jumbo Tetraploid rye grass and grows a high yielding pasture grass with
nutritious forage that horses and livestock love.
In case you want to know, the term tetraploid refers to the breeding process in which the plant's cell nucleus contains four times the number of chromosomes in the
cell nucleus. Thus tetraploid grass types thus have wider leaves, larger cells and are more robust than typical ryegrass.
Attain Pasture Annual Ryegrass Characteristics
- Attain is a 'sister' grass variety to Jumbo Tetraploid
- Excellent re-growth after cutting or grazing for multiple harvesting
- Improved disease Resistance
- Matures later in the season with higher yields
- Tetraploid Ryegrass with it's larger leaves gives much higher yields
- Erect Growth
- Cold Tolerant
- Endophyte free
Attain rye grass seed is similar to the popular Jumbo annual ryegrass and was selected for even better disease resistance, better re-growth, later maturity and higher yields. The data from
Florida and Louisiana indicate that the breeder's objectives were met with superior results in Georgia and Texas. See the
yield data charts for Attain ryegrass for these states.
Attain Tetraploid Annual Ryegrass is a higher yielding, later maturing, and winter-hardy modern tetraploid variety suitable for both grazing and hay production.
Attain exhibits erect growth with large leaves and late maturity. Forage trials throughout the South prove Attain to be superior in yield and re-growth.
Cold injury ratings preformed in
Oklahoma demonstrate that Attain ryegrass has superior winter-hardiness. Disease screenings preformed at Beaumont, TX and Gainesville, FL prove Attain to have superior resistance to gray leaf spot and
crown rust. Attain ryegrass seed not only delivers higher yields with a larger plant, it also delivers higher quality forage that is disease and weather resistance.
Planting Attain Tetraploid Ryegrass Seed For Pastures
Attain Ryegrass seed is a tetraploid variety of ryegrass and thus the seeds are bigger than traditional ryegrass. This fact requires a higher seeding rate.
Seeding Rate: Approximately 35 lbs. per acre for new pastures.
Overseeding Pastures: Approximately 35 lbs per acre.
Planting With Legumes: Legumes such as clovers may be added to your pasture at 1 - 2 lbs per acre.

Annual Ryegrass in your pasture or forage fields.
Annual Rye Grass For the Southeastern USA
Attain annual ryegrass is well adapted to the Southeastern USA as a high yielding pasture and forage grass for fall and winter pasturage. In fact annual ryegrass is considered to be one
of the highest quality winter forages for this area.
