RAGT’s involvement in improving forage grasses is highly motivated.
It began nearly fifty years ago through a selection programme which has accelerated over the last twenty years.
RAGT has a unique genetic resource in France and across Europe, with many registrations each year in all market sectors :
RAGT forage grass innovation: on average 4 to 7 new varieties per year, particularly in France, the United Kingdom, Germany, the Netherlands and Switzerland.
RAGT’s extensive product knowledge is largely due to:
our extensive network of 4 selection centres and plots in co-operation with arable and livestock farmers;
and several thousand assessments, weights and digestibility measurements for comparison with other varieties on the market.
