Progrow is a traditional annual ryegrass, which is best used as a break-crop to carry large volumes of stock through winter, and for early silage production before the re-establishment of spring-sown brassica crops, other crops, or pasture.
Progrow is a finer denser annual making it ideal where there is likelihood of strip grazing or other forms of intensive grazing through winter.
Progrow is a cost-effective tool for patching up old, under-performing pastures, as a break-crop in a pasture renewal program, and as an early step in a land development program. Being a diploid, Progrow can be sown at a lower rate than tetraploids, providing similar production for a low cost.
