Hutchinsons - Hybrid Rye

Welcome to the Hybrid Rye stand.

Hybrid Rye offers potential as biogas feedstock, as an animal feed and as valuable part of our own food industry.


Hutchinsons is able to supply a comprehensive range of Hybrid Rye varieties as well as conventional/forage Rye. In our video below, agronomist Lewis McKerrow compares the growth of hybrid varieties ‘Su Performer’ and ‘Poseidon’ this summer.

Key rotational advantages:
  • High grain yields of 10-13 t/ha - exceeding 2nd wheat
  • Early harvest (whole crop) or grain (typically between winter barley and wheat)
  • Ultra low take-all carry over (2nd lowest compared to oats)
  • High black-grass suppression
  • High straw yield (around 30% higher than wheat or barley)
  • Ideal option for OSR establishment to ensure volunteer control
  • Exceptional drought tolerance on light land.
