Maxsyn

Diploid perennial ryegrass

Maxsyn is the next generation perennial ryegrass for all farm systems, delivering superior persistence, improved summer and autumn growth, and a great endophyte.

Highest total yield

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

 

Shines in summer and autumn

Maxsyn’s strength is its warm season growth. It is easier to graze in spring (encouraging new daughter tillers) and has strong summer tillering, helping it persist.
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.

 

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.

 

Superb pedigree

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.


Maxsyn began as a cross between elite Alto and Arrow ryegrass plants, with the top progeny from this combination then rigorously selected to become ‘the best of the best’.
Its lineage is reflected in its name, which harks back to Bronsyn, the best-selling perennial ryegrass in the 2000s; and Yatsyn 1, the original game-changer.

 

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.
