The persistence of Bronsyn, with the high DM yield and palatability of Tolosa, make Governor an ideal diploid ryegrass for dairy, sheep and beef systems.
Top-5 in NFVT
Governor has very high yield and is in the top 5 perennial ryegrasses for total DM yield in the Naitional Forage Variety Trials (NFVT) summary.
Governor has shown outstanding survival through drought and high insect pressure under grazing in farm trials across the country. Fine and densely tillered, we believe it is the premium AR37 cultivar for persistence. It is also available with AR1 endophyte for situations where AR37 isn’t required.
A key feature is Governor’s ability to grow more DM on the shoulders of the season, in early spring and autumn, when it is most needed.
With a +8 days heading date, low aftermath heading (similar to Alto) and better rust resistance than its parents, Governor is a reliable, persistent all-rounder.
