The hybrid ryegrass is a cross between the Italian and perennial forms of ryegrass and shares characteristics of both.

The dominant parent determines how the variety performs in the field. Some hybrids express the characteristics of the Italian parent very strongly, producing very high yields of up to 20 tonnes per hectare. Other hybrids, express the characteristics of the perennial parent and are very persistent.

Characterised as a rapid growing variety lasting from 1-5 years or longer depending on summer conditions and endophyte status.

Hybrids typically yield 10% more than PRG and consistently produce high yields over 4-5 years and show rapid recovery after cutting.
