**Fall/Winter 2015 Hancock Seed Co. is carrying FL 4N Annual Tetraploid Rye as a great alternative to Attain.**
Attain Tetraploid Annual Ryegrass - A higher yielding, later maturing, and winter-hardy modern tetraploid variety suitable for both grazing and mechanical harvesting. Attain exhibits erect growth with large leaves and late maturity. Forage trial throughout the South prove Attain to be superior in yield and regrowth. Cold injury ratings preformed in Ardmore, OK prove Attain to have superior winter-hardiness. Disease screenings preformed at Beaumont, TX and Gainesville, FL prove Attain to have superior resistance to gray leaf spot and crown rust. Attain not only delivers higher yields with a larger plant, it also delivers higher quality forage through disease and weather resistance.
***Note: Jumbo Annual Ryegrass or Double Diamond Annual Ryegrass may be substituted***

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.
