Hybrid rye provides farmers an opportunity for a third crop in a corn-soybean rotation. Carefully bred for very high grain and biomass yields, excellent lodging resistance, and low ergot, hybrid rye is superior to “standard” open-pollinated winter rye varieties.
In other words, hybrid winter rye is not your grandfather’s cereal rye.
Interest in hybrid rye has skyrocketed in the last few years, and many farmers would like to try it, but they don’t want to break the bank. That’s why Albert Lea Seed is offering two hybrid rye varieties at an early-season discount.
