Legion AR37

AR37 endophyte takes ryegrass pasture persistence and protection to a premium level.

An endophyte is a fungus found naturally in many grass species, including ryegrass. It provides the plant with protection from insects, and in return the plant provides the endophyte with a place to live and reproduce.

Available in: Base, Reason, One50, Vast, #Legion, #Platform and Expo perennial ryegrass, Mohaka hybrid ryegrass and Lush Italian ryegrass.
