Maxsyn NEA4 is the next level in perennial ryegrass for all farm systems – persistent, tough, densely tillered, with superior summer and autumn growth, plus a great endophyte.
Highest total yield
Maxsyn is the next generation with the highest yield of any perennial ryegrass we’ve released.
Shines in summer and autumn
Maxsyn’s strength is summer and autumn growth. This is a time most farm systems are short of feed, so extra pasture is highly valued.
The more tillers a pasture has, the more robust and persistent it is. Maxsyn is denser than Trojan, and similar to Governor.
Maxsyn has excelled in our breeding and trial programme, particular on tough sites in the hotter climate of the upper North Island and on difficult soils.
Maxsyn began as a cross between elite Alto and Arrow ryegrass plants, with the top progeny from this combination then rigorously selected to become ‘the best of the best’.
Its lineage is reflected in its name, which harks back to Bronsyn, the best-selling perennial ryegrass in the 2000s; and Yatsyn 1, the original game-changer.
1 + 1 = 3
Maxsyn and NEA4 endophyte together add up to more than their parts. This combination is showing excellent persistence in the field under real life pressures such as moisture stress, heat, insects and overgrazing, sometimes all at once.
For dairy cows and beef, Maxsyn NEA4 provides ryegrass staggers free pasture. For sheep and deer, ryegrass staggers grazing NEA4 endophyte is a very low risk.
Maxsyn’s features mean it can improve farm systems in a range of situations.
Standard very high performance, persistent dairy pasture.
