DargoDargo Annual Ryegrass

Annual Ryegrass

Dargo is an Italian type annual diploid ryegrass that was bred in Australia for strong seedling vigour and fast establishment and to provide quick early good quality feed for stock. Dargo is therefore ideally suited to our unreliable or often late autumn breaks in dryland farming systems. Dargo also offers exceptional winter and spring production and recovers quickly from grazing. Dargo can be grazed and then be locked up for hay or silage.
