Arise Italian RyegrassContact us
Arise is the newest late maturing tetraploid Italian ryegrass (+15 days) bred for Barenbrug. Arise offers quick establishment for early feed and a wide growth period, providing quality feed throughout the year. Arise is capable of multiple grazings throughout late autumn, winter, early spring and late spring, with the ability to produce quality feed in a second year under the correct conditions. This provides the benefit of a more productive pasture to grow more home-grown feed for your livestock. Suitable for over sowing into existing pastures for a boost to establish quick feed options, reducing the need for winter supplementary feeding and aiding to fill the winter feed gap.

Variety Management / Agronomy
Sowing rate: For best results sow Arise at 25-35 kg/ha into a clean, weed-free seed-bed with adequate soil fertility (use much higher sowing rates if broadcasting).
Sowing depth: Ryegrass can be sown at 5-20 mm, however if sowing in a mix with clover, try to keep the sowing depth from 5-10mm.
Fertiliser: For best performance, soil fertility and acidity problems should be amended prior to sowing. It is usually best to plant ryegrass with 60-100 kg/ha of MAP or DAP at sowing to provide some starter phosphorus and nitrogen.
Weeds: Ideally reducing the weed burden of a paddock should commence in the season prior to sowing by reducing the seedset of annual weeds with either a herbicide control or silage. Additionally a knock-down herbicide (such as glyphosate) is best applied prior to sowing if weeds are present.
Grazing: Ensure the first grazing doesn’t take place until the plants are sufficiently anchored. Use your hand to pull on the plants at grazing height. If the plants remain in the ground, then grazing can commence. Ideally, ryegrass should be rotationally grazed for optimal growth. To do this, graze at the 2.5-3 leaf stage, then let the plants rest again to the 2.5-3 leaf stage to re-charge the carbohydrates levels to enable better growth rates.
