Bounty Annual Ryegrass

Annual Ryegrass is rapidly becoming the cover crop of choice for producers throughout the Midwest. It is easy to establish by seeding via drill, broadcast, or aerial application. Annual Ryegrass can significantly increase crop yields during stress years and has been shown to reduce soybean cyst nematode drastically. Interseeding Annual Ryegrass works well, especially when interseeded into corn due to its non-allelopathic traits.  A bonus attribute is its ability to pull Phosphorus & Potassium up from the subsoil and redeposit these nutrients within reach of shallower rooting plants.  Annual Ryegrass is recommended in many mixes, as a stand-alone cover crop, and is fantastic when used for interseeding. The versatility of Annual Ryegrass enables it to stand out as one of the best all-around cover crop species.

Don’t confuse Annual Ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum) with Cereal Rye (Secale cereale). Growth and utilization as a cover crop are different for each species.  Annual Ryegrass has a more delicate and extensive root system than Cereal Rye, while Cereal Rye has more above ground top growth than Annual Ryegrass.

Bounty Annual Ryegrass is a consistent, proven variety with an excellent history of winter hardiness and superior rooting depth. For full termination guidelines, refer to the Annual Ryegrass Management Guide produced by the Oregon Ryegrass Commission.
