Currently, throughout the UK, most reseeds are a mixture of diploid and tetraploid perennial ryegrass.
There are also other types of ryegrass and species used such as clovers, Timothy, cocksfoot, and in recent years Festuloliums, which all have a role to play in certain situations.
Each of these species have different growth and quality characteristics so it is important to select the most appropriate species for your ground and situation.
Compared to modern day ryegrasses, these weed grasses will produce lower yields and lower quality forage. The palatability and digestibility will also be poorer which will all result in a reduction in animal performance and profitability from home grown forage.
