Annual ryegrass is normally planted from September through November. The recommended seeding rate is 20-30 lbs./acre in a well-prepared seedbed. the ideal sowing depth is 1/4". Broadcasting and no-till are two of the most popular planting methods. Once established, grazing a Jumbo pasture should commence at a height of 8-9". Rotational grazing will provide the best yield results, however, ryegrass will tolerate close and continuous grazing. Ryegrass responds to Nitrogen and is tolerant of moderate soil acidity.

In high rainfall areas of the Gulf Coast, high production can be expected throughout the winter from November to May. Farther north, most of the production is from late February through May.
