Remington is a high-yielding, high-quality tetraploid ryegrass that shares many attributes of a diploid type. Remington was selected in the U.S. for its sward density, high yields, and excellent disease resistance. Remington has improved winter tolerance compared to traditional cultivars. Remington also exhibits improved tolerance to heat and produces longer into the summer than the competition. Remington's is well-suited to grazing and high-moisture cutting systems. Its exceptional palatability promotes high dry matter intake in a grazing situation. And, as a perennial ryegrass, Remington provides extremely nutritious and digestible forage. Remington is a component in many Barenbrug blends and mixtures such as BG-24T, Tetra-plus, and Beefmaster.

Remington is suited to rotational grazing and frequent cutting systems. Due to its slow rate of dry down, Remington is less suited to being planted alone and harvested for dry hay. It is an excellent selection for high-moisture cutting. Remington works well in a mixed planting. For a grazing situation, seed with a large-leaved white clover such as Alice. For high-moisture cutting, seed with a premium red clover such as Freedom!. It can be interplanted into thinning alfalfa fields to improve yield and extend stand life. Because it responds well to effluent water application, Remington is an effective nutrient management tool.
In moderate climates, or in hot dry areas with irrigation, plantings may be made in spring or fall. In areas prone to summer drought, fall planting is recommended. At planting, apply 35 to 40 lbs nitrogen/acre to ensure good establishment. Remington's seedling vigor and rapid establishment make it a perfect choice for notill seedings. Plant no deeper than ¼ inch. Grazing or clipping encourages tillering and the establishment of a dense sward.
- Seeding rate: 25 lbs/acre
- No-till overseeding rate: 15 lbs/acre
- Broadcast seeding rate: 35 - 40 lbs/acre
For optimal production, maintain pasture in a vegetative state with scheduled harvest via grazing or cutting. In a grazing scheme, graze down to a 3 inch height. For machine harvest, cut in pre-boot stage of maturity. As a species, perennial ryegrass is susceptible to dry conditions. However, provided adequate moisture, Remington produces acceptable yields of high quality forage during the summer months.
