General Information

Ryegrass is not the same as Rye, which is a grain crop.

Winter rye is any breed of rye planted in the fall to provide ground cover for the winter. It actually grows during any warmer days of the winter, when sunlight temporarily brings the plant to above freezing, even while there is still general snow cover.

Can be made into flour, bread, beer, whiskies, and vodkas.

Rye is highly susceptible to the ergot fungus.

Rye seems also active in the prevention of prostate cancer.
