Perennial Ryegrass // Lolium perenne
It was selected at both Avoca and Campbell Town in the dry midlands area of Tasmania during the 1982/83 drought from a line of Victorian perennial ryegrass. During this time there were repeated outbreaks of red-headed Cockchafer.
As Victoca is very persistent and handles stress well, including the stress of trampling, it is well suited to amenity use including sports oval, backyards and any high wear areas.
