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.


2020 varieties:

KWS TAYO –
A brand new addition from KWS, a multi-purpose hybrid (AD or grain, feed, flour and distilling).

KWS SERAFINO – Introduced in 2019, AD & grain variety. Excellent stem stiffness and brown rust resistance.

KWS PROPOWER – High yielding AD variety, similar biogas yield/tonne to maize.

KWS ETERNO – AD & Grain variety – High whole crop and grain yields, good brown rust resistance.

KWS EDMONDO – AD & Grain variety – No1 Harvest Index (grain/ear). Good stem stiffness and disease resistance.

SU ARVID – A new, candidate variety from Elsoms, strong agronomically, excellent results in whole crop situations.

SU COSSANI – Suited to later drilling slot and lighter land. Prostrate growth habit, very competitive. Best for baking.

SU PERFORMER – Highest yielding Saaten Union variety. Suited to heavier land and earlier drilling slot.

SU NASRI – Early maturing (4 days earlier than SU PERFORMER) Robust disease resistance. Good malting quality.

HELLTOP – High DM variety with excellent yield and standing power.

POSEIDON – Recently introduced variety from Nordic seeds. AHDB data suggests high yields and robust agronomics.

How to mitigate heat stress in cattle

Written by John Swire

With temperatures forecast to rise above 25°C, cattle producers should be prepared to mitigate the negative effects of heat stress on their beef and dairy animals.

“Cattle are fairly comfortable when the ambient temperature is between 15°C and 25°C over the summer months but if the thermometer rises significantly, production performance will start to suffer,” warns Jacob Lakin from Azelis Animal Nutrition.

“This is because both a milk production and growing beef animal will start to divert energy away from production performance towards keeping cool. You’ll notice if a cow is struggling during a summer heatwave because she will start to salivate heavily and pant...
