It is often used to overseed warm season lawn grasses (Buffalo, Couch, Zoysia, Kikuyu QLD Blue) to provide a green, economical grass cover from Autumn to Spring. Other use include weed suppression and temporary erosion control,.

Annual rye grass is an easy to establish grass and with sufficient moisture seeds will even germinate when broadcast on top of established lawns or pastures.
