Sultan offers a new level of productivity from annual ryegrass. It offers a lower sowing cost for higher winter feed and carrying capacity.

One of its distinguishing features within this category is that it is a diploid type. The majority of annual ryegrasses are tetraploids, requiring a much higher sowing rate than Sultan. This can typically be between 25-30kg per hectare for a tetraploid type compared with 18kg per hectare with Sultan.

Agronomic features:
  • Fast establishing diploid annual
