Tribal is a tetraploid forage type perennial ryegrass selected for forage yield, digestibility, and disease resistance. Its yield is characterized by season long persistence and aggressive regrowth delivering high productivity in multi-cut systems or aggressive grazing programs. Bred from European material, it has improved winterhardiness that is suitable for harsher climates and tolerance to dry conditions.
Tribal offers premier quality hay, pasture, or silage. Its excellent digestibility and feed value – attributable to breeding efforts to reduce heading (setting seed through summer) – is suitable for all classes of livestock, especially those with high nutrient requirements. Tribal is accompanied by a strong disease package that has shown exceptional resistance to crown and stem rust, powdery mildew and Drechslera.
