Hogan

Tetraploid annual ryegrass

Hogan sets the standard for tetraploid annual ryegrass, producing 1 t DM/ha (worth $380/ha) – and it looks fantastic too!

High value

Hogan establishes rapidly and out produces 30+ year old Tama by 1 t DM/ha. Hogan’s advantage is valued by the DairyNZ Forage Value Index at $380/ha extra profit, i.e. a 10 fold return on the extra $35-$45/ha it costs to sow Hogan over Tama.

 

Fast establishment

Hogan is a tetraploid bred for rapid establishment (21% faster than Tama) to provide fast feed in autumn, a critical advantage particularly following dry summers.


Hogan is in the top ranking for annual ryegrass in the National Forage Variety Trials.

 

 

 

Sowing Hogan

Hogan annual ryegrass can be sown alone, or mixed with oats or annual clovers as a winter crop. The Hogan/annual clovern mix has less winter growth.

Italian & annual

Italians are fast establishing with good winter growth and feed quality. Mainly used for short term winter crop, 2-3 year pasture under summer mild condtions, or undersowing into run out pasture to boost growth. 

Annuals are generally used for 6-8 month winter crop prior to sowing a summer crop. Similar winter growth to Italian ryegrass but generally have little persistence.
