LowBoy Annual Ryegrass

LowBoy is as easy to terminate as it is to plant, giving it an edge over traditional annual ryegrasses used for cover cropping. Its unique growing habit reduces weeds, yet allow for other cover crop species. LowBoy is deep-rooted and cold-tolerant too, making it an ideal cover crop tool.

Great Ground Coverage

Compared to other annual ryegrasses, LowBoy has much more aggressive tillering. This spreading effect minimizes bare soil, runoff, evaporation, and unwanted weeds during the growing season.

Easy To Terminate

LowBoy’s narrower leaves and reduced top growth make it easier for late-season termination, especially during wetter springs.

Deep and Wide Roots

LowBoy's roots go deep. They also go wide helping retain soil, absorb water and create an abundance of root channels.

Cold Tolerant

LowBoy has shown good cold tolerance in Midwest trials.

Planting Green & No-Till

Thanks to its shorter canopy and minimal residue, LowBoy is ideal for planting green and no-till crop establishment.


While used primarily as a cover crop, LowBoy is also safe for all livestock and free of toxic endophyte.
