Rye is an annual temperate grass or cereal crop, grown as either forage- or grain. It is categorized as a forage cereal together with Oats and Triticale. Forage cereals produce forage for autumn, winter and spring.


As a forage crop it can be utilised as grazing, silage or hay (if cut at a vegetative stage). It is very drought tolerant and more cold tolerant than Oats and Triticale.
