Mona tetraploid Italian ryegrass was bred to replace Jeanne, with improved production across all seasons, providing farmers with a high-quality, leafy feed all year round.
Mona's very late heading date extends farmers' spring grazing period and provides a high quality graze, cut of leafy forage or bulky silage. Uncompromised by its late heading, Mona displays good winter and early spring growth.
