Wrens Abruzzi Grain Rye Seed - Rye is the small grain most widely used for winter grazing for cattle and wildlife in food plots. Grain Rye is more cold tolerant than oats and generally produces more forage than either oats or wheat. If rye is planted very early in the season, it is often hurt by various seedling diseases. It is often best to wait until cool weather prevails. Normally rye developed from northern states will produce little forage in late fall or early winter and will usually be severely damaged by leaf rust; therefore, plant only varieties recommended for the Southeastern U. S. Recommended varieties (by maturity): Early: FL 401 (for early grazing or for use in blends), AGS 104.Medium: Wrens 96, Wrens Abruzzi, Pennington Wintergraze 70, and Early Graze. Late: Bates, OklonOat –Oat is very palatable forage but is susceptible to freeze injury. For more information on Wrens Abruzzi Grain Rye please call or contact us.
