  • Barelli is particularly recommended for use in intercropping systems (e.g. after maize harvest) or one year leys (spring sowing).


  • Barelli is a diploid and has a high dry matter content in the plant and therefore, it does not cause extra effluent problems.


Feeding aspects:


  • Barelli is very palatable and digestible to stock.
  • This means that a high quality silage of hay can be obtained.
  • Barelli contains good levels of Water Soluble Carbohydrates

                (sugars) to give better fermentation.

Italian ryegrass provides excellent quality forage for up to two years, depending on climate and available moisture. Due to its quick regrowth, very early development in spring and a prolonged growing period in autumn, this species usually has greater overall productivity than perennial ryegrass.
