Governor

Diploid perennial ryegrass

Governor combines genetics from two of Barenbrug's most popular cultivars to set a very high standard for persistence in AR37 perennial ryegrass. With outstanding survival and excellent DM yield on the shoulders of the season, Governor delivers feed when it’s needed most. Heading is +8 days and Governor is available with AR37, AR1 or Low endophyte.

Genetic legacy

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.

 

Persistent

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.

 

Seasonal growth

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.

 

All rounder

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.
