The favourable characteristics of Italian ryegrass and perennial ryegrass are brought together in hybrid ryegrass (Lolium hybridum). Hybrid ryegrass has a quicker spring development than perennial ryegrass and gives, under good conditions, a high level of production for 2 to 3 years. Winter hardiness is better than in Italian ryegrass.
