Mohaka AR37 hybrid ryegrass thriving in Ngāhinapōuri, Waikato

“Our core business is investing in the research and development of forage options and in the advancement of endophyte technology to increase profits returned back to farmers,” says an Agricom spokesperson.

Mohaka AR37

Mohaka is a tetraploid hybrid ryegrass that is available in both AR37 and AR1 endophytes and is well suited for 2-4 year pastures with higher drymatter production than perennial ryegrass, particularly in winter and spring. In dairy systems Mohaka AR37 is a flexible grass that can be used as the basis of a highly productive short to medium term pasture or as an undersowing option to extend the life of existing perennial pasture. Mohaka is well suited to silage systems or for use on run-off blocks. Compared to perennial ryegrasses, Mohaka AR37 is fast to establish and with its strong cool season growth it makes Mohaka AR37 a great option for undersowing into pastures that may need a full renovation in 2-4 years’ time.

Legion AR37

Legion AR37 is a late heading (+13) diploid perennial ryegrass which is a flexible, complete all-rounder with outstanding summer, autumn and winter growth. Legion AR37 has been bred for low aftermath seeding and shows excellent summer leafiness making it a great option for a pasture base in all dairy systems.

Reason AR37

Reason AR37 is a new, mid heading (+3) diploid perennial ryegrass that is ideal for dairy systems looking to boost early spring growth without compromising total yield. On dairy platforms with a lot of area in late heading ryegrasses Reason AR37 is an ideal option to spread out feed supply by adding an earlier heading date. With its low aftermath heading and strong summer and autumn drymatter production, Reason AR37 is also extremely competitive with other later heading ryegrass options later in the season for both quality and quantity of pasture production.
