Westerwold Ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum west.)

This is an annual form of ryegrass which is very fast to establish and produce forage. It is the only grass to produce a stem and seed head from a spring sowing making it suitable for the production of hay for horses. It is a very good N Lifter and is very quick to make a large root mass making it suitable as a green manure. It is less expensive than cereal rye (below) and is popular for this reason. It effectively seeks out and mops up nitrate in soil. Used on its own or as a companion with nitrogen fixing vetch.
