A mid flowering, densely tillered, diploid perennial ryegrass offering early spring production and rust tolerance. Bred specifically to replace Kingston, Kingsgate has excellent low aftermath heading (a trait not common in early and mid-heading perennial ryegrasses). Best suited to beef and sheep grazing, Kingsgate performs well in low fertility areas and marginal country.
Sowing rate (sole): 20-25kg/ha
