SunGrazer Plus

SunGrazer Plus Annual ryegrass is the newest improved variety of tetraploid ryegrass. Pogue Agri Partners will be able to offer only a limited supply of this new variety for the 2003-04 Fall thru Spring growing season. SunGrazer Plus was developed from a cross with a plant collected from the semi-arid region of Mexico. This new variety offers even greater yields in the arid Southwest. In initial Texas trials, SunGrazer Plus outyielded Rustmaster, Beefbuilder III, Marshall, TAM 90 and Blizzard. SunGrazer Plus also had substantially higher first cutting yield.
