Vast is the next generation in tetraploid perennial ryegrass breeding delivering the ultimate combination of density, quality, production and grazing preference for New Zealand farmers to maximise stock performance and productivity.
With an extremely late (+36 days) heading date, Vast offers the latest perennial ryegrass heading date on the market. Low seed head production after the initial seeding period, in combination with a very late flowering date, means Vast will provide high quality feed across the majority of the growing season.
How’s it work? Just plant the herbicide resistant Cleancrop™ seeds and then spray Telar® herbicide within 48 hours to control 23 problem weeds taking root, leaving all the goodness in the soil for your crop to thrive on. With reduced competition from weeds, crop yield and your return on investment goes up.
Every solution is as unique as the land it's grown on, so we dig deep into the needs of the farm, the farmer and their goals. Through education and better understanding of the potential benefits from different seed management and grazing/crop systems, we believe all farmers have the opportunity to improve their profitability through managing crops and feed.
We help farmers make informed decisions about the right choice in seed and management practices to get the level of high quality feed needed to increase animal performance and production.
Developed by PGG Wrightson Seeds under the Forage Innovations joint venture with Plant and Food Research, Pallaton Raphno® (a hybrid between kale and radish) has been bred to perform in increasingly challenging environments.

Respect for the environment and awareness of the impact we have on the world around us; its natural resources, ecosystems and our communities, are core to PGG Wrightson Seeds and our approach to issues of environmental sustainability and social responsibility. As a result of this, our support of Meat the Need was an easy decision; an initiative where New Zealand farmers feed New Zealanders who are most in need, was something we’re proud of.
