Avalon perennial ryegrass is a synthetic variety derived from 6 parental genotypes selected from Victorian. It was developed as a more productive and disease resistant alternative to Victorian perennial ryegrass for use as pasture in the high rainfall zone (>650 mm) of southern Australia. Avalon is late-maturing with medium leaf width and length, and a large number of relatively short tillers. In trials, Avalon has proved to be high yielding.
