Meroa Italian Ryegrass


Please call for more information


   Meroa is a late-maturing, high quality, true tetraploid Italian ryegrass with good winter hardiness. It is ideal for beef, dairy, and other high-performance forage applications.

  Meroa is both a tetraploid and an Italian ryegrass. This makes it very useful. First, as a tetraploid ryegrass, it has twice the chromosomes as a diploid ryegrass, higher sugar content, and bigger, more succulent leaves. Meroa is also a true Italian ryegrass, meaning that when planted in cool-season regions it normally will not go to seedhead until the following next summer. In warm-season climates a fall planting is recommended.
