Lonestar Annual Ryegrass

Lonestar Annual Ryegrass is a very cold tolerant, disease resistant forage that has excellent seedling vigor and rapid re-growth. Lonestar is a medium maturing variety suitable for grazing, hay, or cover crop. Lonestar is a diploid annual ryegrass, which will allow the hay to dry quicker than tetraploid varieties.

Lonestar features improved foliar disease resistance such as gray leaf spot and crown rust. Lonestar provides growers the highest quality forage and high yields. Lonestar has placed near the top of forage trials throughout the U.S. for overall dry matter yields.

Lonestar has shown to perform well in cold or high temperatures making it one of the most versatile ryegrasses available. Plant February thru May or August thru October. Seed 25 pounds per acre drilled or 30 pounds per acre broadcasted.
