Rye Grasses

Duration: 2 hours

Rye grasses belong to the genus Lolium. Perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne) varies widely genetically; Mediterranean bred types (from Southern Europe) can over-winter and retain the colour and still grow, those from northern Europe (Continental types) shut down over winter - due to their adaption to extreme cold conditions. In this course, you will learn about the characteristics, culture and uses of rye grasses as a turf.
