Pasture ryegrass

Among a variety of plants, it is often found perennial ryegrass. This plant is a perennial loose shrub grass. Which have 5-12 flowers.

Perennial ryegrass is a fairly moisture-loving plant, so drought can be fatal for it. Irrigation has a very positive effect on the development of this plant. But at the same time, prolonged flooding can destroy ryegrass. Spring hardiness and winter hardiness this plant is low. Grows well in mild climates. Can't stand winter. If it is snowless.

Ryegrass is very often used to create cultivated hayfields or pastures. The plant grows very well on fertile loamy, moderately moist and sandy loamy soils. On dry podzolized sandy loam and on acidic soils, ryegrass develops poorly.

If conditions are favorable, the ryegrass yield is very high. This is a rather valuable sign that is valued for its nutritional value.

This plant does not grow for long. The highest yields are obtained in the second or third year of the plant's life, after which the productivity decreases significantly. On pastures in herbage, this grass is able to survive for three to four years. It can be used for seeds for several more years.

Ryegrass can be affected by diseases such as rust, powdery mildew, spotting and many other plants.

In a continental climate, this plant is grown extremely rarely, since poor winter hardiness and insufficient longevity do not allow for abundant cultivation.
