Festulolium is a cross between Meadow Fescue or Tall Fescue and Ryegrass. This creates a combination of high quality from Ryegrass with good Winter hardiness, persistence and stress tolerance from Fescues. As a result of crossing/backcrossing and selection, DLF have types similar to Italian Ryegrass, Hybrid Ryegrass and Tall Fescue, all with improved characteristics taken from the parent crossings. This gives an excellent opportunity to extend the growing season with these high quality grasses.

PERSEUS - Advanced™ Italian Ryegrass
PERSEUS is a variety with a very vigorous growth both in spring and after cutting, but at the same time also with a good persistence.
