Maxsyn

Diploid perennial ryegrass

Maxsyn is the next generation in perennial ryegrass – persistent, tough, densely tillered, with the highest total DM yield we’ve seen in a diploid perennial. High tiller numbers help it tolerate a range of different stresses. Maxsyn is the unbeaten diploid for total yield in the NFVTs for All New Zealand trials. Available with NEA4 endophyte; heading +8 days.

Highest total yield

Maxsyn is the next generation with the highest yield of any perennial ryegrass we’ve released.

 

Shines in summer 

Summer is a time most farm systems are short of feed, so extra pasture is highly valued. Visually you can see the difference, with Maxsyn holding its green colour longer into hot summer conditions.


Top diploid in the FVI
Maxsyn is an unbeaten diploid perennial ryegass in the 2022 DairyNZ Forage Value Index. It has a 5-star rating in the lower North Island and a 4-star rating through other regions.


Unbeaten in the NFVT's

It is also the unbeaten diploid perennial ryegrass in the 2021-22 industry National Forage Variety Trials (NFVT) for total yield across all New Zealand trials.

 

Densely tillered

The more tillers a pasture has, the more robust and persistent it is. Maxsyn is denser than Trojan, and similar to Governor.

 

 

Maxsyn has excelled in our breeding and trial programme, particular on tough sites in the hotter climate of the upper North Island and on difficult soils.

 

1 + 1 = 3

Maxsyn and NEA4 endophyte together add up to more than their parts. This combination is showing excellent persistence in the field under real life pressures such as moisture stress, heat, insects and overgrazing, sometimes all at once.


For dairy cows and beef, Maxsyn NEA4 provides ryegrass staggers free pasture. For sheep and deer, ryegrass staggers grazing NEA4 endophyte is a very low risk.

 

Sowing Maxsyn

Maxsyn’s features mean it can improve farm systems in a range of situations.

Perennial ryegrass

Throughout NZ, perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) is the grass of choice for permanent pastures. It establishes rapidly, yields well, tolerates a range of management practices and has a high nutritive value.
