Seed at 15-20 lbs per acre

Very persistent

Starts strong and looks even better in second and third hay years

Superior disease resistance

Performs better than alfalfa on wet and poorer soils

Seed at 10-12 lbs per acre by itself or 2-3 lbs per acre with alfalfa

Adapted to low pH soils

Great fall ground cover

Plant 3-10 weeks before killing frost

Sends deep tap roots down to open up soil

Tubars store deep soil nutrients that break down and release in spring

Plant 1/4” – 1/2” deep

Seed at 8-10 lbs per acre, 4-6 lbs if mixed

Festulolium is a cross between Perennial Ryegrass and Meadow Fescue, giving it several very excellent qualities: ease of establishment, persistence, rapid regrowth, good disease resistance, season-long performance and high forage quality. Don’t let the long name put you off. If you need a grass, use Festulolium.

A late maturing variety that keeps its quality when seeded with alfalfa. Also does extremely well when frost-seeded into a thinning pasture.

Fits well in clover and alfalfa mixes. Highly palatable. Horses love it.

Works well when seeding down with alfalfa at 3-5 lbs per acre. Very high palatability allows more milk per acre yields. Best as a cover crop.

Ideal for long term pastures. High palatability and fast recovery allows for intensive grazing management and higher milk production.

Quicker to establish than Smooth Brome and provides higher yields of more palatable forage especially in the seeding year.
