  • Perenniality Perennial
Kingston perennial ryegrass is a mid-flowering diploid perennial ryegrass, with strong early-spring activity. This allows Kingston to contribute valuable growth in the critical early lambing and calving period. Kingston is one of the more versatile ryegrasses in the Agricom range. A high tiller density gives good tolerance to occasional hard grazing, and winter damage, and allows rapid recovery after grazing. Part of Kingston’s breeding has improved tolerance to acid soils containing Aluminium.
Kingston has shown particularly strong application to South Island conditions.
