The system is based on the understanding that a ryegrass tiller typically supports three green leaves. This factsheet has a diagram of the plant and its leaf stages along with the calculation used to determine leaf appearance interval and thus rotation length.

Worksheet 5 has a calcualtion table so you can use the assessment to determine rotation length. The worksheet can be downloaded here.

You are able to download this factsheet from the Grass+ programme. The full programme is available via post from this link.
