Ryegrass Lawn

Annual Ryegrass (Italian)
lolium multiflorum

Perennial Ryegrass
Lolium perenne

Ryegrasses are cool season grasses used in permanent and temporary sites. With a beautiful green color. Ryegrass is eco-friendly, as it gives back to the soil and requires little maintenance. Ryegrass is also effective at controlling nematodes in soils.

Ryegrasses germinate fast, usually from 5 to 14 days in good weather and soil conditions with good seed / soil contact. Regular watering before and after planting improves germination rates. This kind of fast germination and growth makes an ideal niche in the grassing industry to provide stabilization coverage when used alone or when mixed with other slower germinating grasses. Annual and perennial are also used to overseed warm season "dormant" grasses providing green coverage during milder winters within the transition zone southward.

Annual Ryegrass Seeding Rate For Lawns

Annual Ryegrass is seeded at the rate of 5-10 lbs. per 1000 square feet --- this is a heavily seeded lawn grass because of the need to assure a more even texture of the upright growing habit of the ryegrass in a lawn. This is not true of all grass seeds but in this instance it works better for a lawn of this type grass to be planted at higher seeding rates.

Annual Ryegrass Seeding Rate For Forage or Pastures

Annual Ryegrass Forage - Poundage depends upon usage and land preparation with the average being 15-30 LB/A alone and mixed with other seeds such as legumes or other small grains sow at the rate of 10-15 LB/A. When sown directly into the ground plant at the depth of 1-2 in. Broadcasting seeds requires more pounds per acre because many seeds will not get good ground contact. The higher seeding rate will result in a thicker, more compact stand.

Perennial Ryegrass Seeding Rate For Lawns

Perennial Ryegrass Lawns is best sown at approximately 3 1/2 to 5 pounds per 1,000 square feet when grown in a single stand. The grass can germinate in 5 to 12 days depending upon moisture conditions.

Perennial Ryegrass Seeding Rate For Pastures or Forage

Perennial Ryegrass pasture seeding rates should be about 30 pounds to the acre for the best results and thickest possible stand when planted alone The heaviest seeding rate will result in a more compact sod and heavier forage material and prevent less wear damage from livestock from the beginning usage. Do not Put livestock on any pasture until the grass is firmly established. Many pastures are not planned ahead of buying the livestock and never get a chance to be fully utilized. Perennial can germinate in about 5 t 12 days depending upon weather conditions. Fertilize on schedule for the optimum feeding in the seedling stage.

OVERSEEDING rates for both ryes will be about the same because many of the seed will not get into the ground since you will be seeding into an established turf or pasture especially over thick, dense pasturage that has been well managed.
