Late type of festulolium





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.

The PERSEUS variety is a cross between Italian ryegrass and meadow fescue and belongs to the ryegrass type of festulolium. The result is a variety with a very vigorous growth both in spring and after cutting..

For cutting purposes

PERSEUS belongs to the same group of festulolium as PAULITA and PERUN, but with 4-5 days later year emergence. This makes PERSEUS very well suited for mixtures for intermediate cutting.


Fine forage quality

PERSEUS is participating in trials in many European countries and the results show very interesting properties. Due to the late year emergence, the feeding value and energy concentration of PERSEUS is very high.
