Festulolium (Italian type)

Festulolium spp.

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.

  • Very high yield of dry matter
  • Tolerant to drought and flooding
  • Excellent Winter hardiness
  • Improved disease resistance
  • Digestibility and sugar levels to match Perennial Ryegrass

Different types with different properties: 

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.

LOFA as an Advanced™ Hybrid Ryegrass.

LOFA combines incredible palatability, yield and quality with stress tolerance and persistence.

FOJTAN Advanced Tall Fescue

FOJTAN has a deep and penetrating root structure to withstand extremes. It combines this with a very broad leaf, making it especially suitable for crops such as hay.
