Festulolium Silage Ley - 2 Year Dry Land Ley

Ref: mixaf

A natural hybridisation of Italian ryegrass and fescue, combining the deeper rooting, stress resistant genes of fescue with the bulky yield and high quality of Italian ryegrass. An ideal mixture for dry areas, this will give a high yielding drought resistant crop that lasts for 2 years.

Grass

Festulolium (Hybrid)

Festulolium is a natural hybridisation of ryegrass and fescue species, combining the stress resistant genes of fescue with the bulky yield of ryegrass. To provide a more resilient species, with a better tolerance of drought or water logged soils, while still providing high yielding, very palatable forage.

Grass

Italian Ryegrass

This is a short lived grass lasting for two years. It is very high yielding and reliably provides up to 18t DM per hectare on soils that suit it. (All ryegrasses yield less on light soils, especially in low rainfall areas.) It has a very open growth habit with fewer tillers than other grasses. It is therefore better suited to cutting than grazing. Italian ryegrass has been the subject of plant breeding for many years, which means there are a wide range of varieties available commercially.
