Abbruzi has been the standard around here for a long time. We tried Elbon once a few years ago but had to use it totally last year due to supply. The winter was not good to cool season annuals but the odd thing about the Elbon is that it seems to have more allopathic effects on permanent forages. That's the only two I have experienced. I will got with triticale this fall most likely in place of rye.

That is interesting about the Elbon. I've been using it for years and my summer forage in those pastures has progressively declined...that's why I was interested in your summer annual test. I guess I'll try the Rymin with my ryegrass because that is all that is available.

I tried triticale a couple of years ago and it didn't do very well.

We got 342 Trical. Armyworms are still everywhere so I will wait a bit longer to drill it in. Also Marshall Ryegrass was not available. I'm not sure why but went with Big Boss as a substitute. I'll probably never know the difference.

We didn't have Marshall last year, so I used all Big Boss. When the 'global warming polar vortex' hit, everything stopped growing for a few weeks. Wish I had some Marshall planted then to compare the two because of Marshall's good rep for cold tolerance. Although Marshall is more expensive, I planted a field so I can get a comparison this year. It's not necessarily more expensive if it works better.

I'm all planted waiting on a rain.

Maybe you should plant some rye also to see the difference between the Trical.

Last winter messed with all ryegrasses. Odd that Marshall does so well here but UGA does not recommend planting it more than 100 miles inland from the Atlantic. I will go with what I have as I have already shook the piggy bank by its feet. We used to plant some triticale for hay in mixes years ago and it did well.

There is disincentive to recommend Ryegrass in Universities.

I tried to buy some and a local seed dealer said if it worked everyone would be doing it. Felt a little like a monkey who had never tried to climb the pole was warning me. I couldn't figure out how it could be such a big problem and not work at the same time.

Italian ryegrass is a very desirable species in NZ - of course as far as I know we do not have the conflict of wheat growers - we find that both sheep and beef fatten quickly on it - it is fast growing and vigorous but only lasts for two seasons so is used a lot in pasture development / renewal alternating with forage cropping. Perhaps the wheat growers should just grow grass and fatten some cattle ...................... Wink sorry, it's a Kiwi thing - can't help myself

Weed is a plant out of place.
