Kingsgate is a mid-flowering perennial ryegrass and a strong performer in the Australian persistence market. It is densely tillered and offers good early-spring production with strong rust resistance levels.

Bred specifically to replace Kingston, Kingsgate has excellent low aftermath heading - a trait not common in early and mid-heading perennial ryegrasses - and performs well in low fertility areas and marginal country. It comes in standard endophyte and is best suited to sheep and beef grazing areas.

Sowing rate:
20-25 kg/ha alone
15-20 kg with clovers
