    I've got a 50 lb bag of Ryegrass that has been sitting in my shop for 2 years. It's been dry, but my concern is how hot it gets in the shop as well as length of time. I've got a job spreading some rye today and it would be nice to use what I have.

    I would use it but go a bit heavier than usual. Figure about 10% germination rate loss per year, but depends on conditions.
