Maxsyn is a diploid perennial ryegrass that is very densely tillered. Known as a highly persistent year-round performer, it tolerates a range of conditions and is a standout remaining green in a summer dry. Maxsyn has NEA4 endophyte-enhancing persistence, proving to be an excellent combination.

Diploid plants

Ryegrass is a diploid plant naturally, having two sets of chromosomes. The advantage of diploids is that they combine yield and robustness, meaning that they perform in a variety of conditions. Diploid plants produce more tillers per plant, with a lower water content per cell, which results in a higher dry matter per kilogram of feed and more energy than tetraploid plants. Compared to tetraploid cultivars, they are more robust and less likely to be overgrazed, more tolerant to pugging and less likely to be attacked by pests like Argentine stem weevil. Their robustness is a trade-off with lower metabolisable energy (than tetraploids) with a lower ratio of soluble carbohydrate to fibre. Their lower denser growth form can shade clover, making them less compatible than tetraploids.

+8 days heading.

A strength of Maxsyn’s is its growth in the warmer seasons. Traditionally Summer is a time most farm systems become short of feed, Maxsyn’s extra growth at this time is very valuable.
