Specialty Seeds can source an even wider range of ryegrasses that we currently dont have listed on our website. A small range of these other alternatives are listed below but if you are interested in something outside these please dont hesitate to contact us.

Aus Vic Ryegrass:
Aus Vic Ryegrass was selected for improved stock safety and improved dry matter production.

Nui Ryegrass:
Older cultivar however has passed the test of time used as a general purpose ryegrass.

Victorian Ryegrass:
The most commonly used variety for many years, and although outclassed by most of the newer varieties, shows more drought tolerance than most other ryegrass cultivars. Rust is a problem with Victorian and it also has high endophyte levels which can cause staggers in sheep when grazing at particular times of the year.
