Yield and Persistency
Tall fescue type
Very early springgrowth
Very high yield
Increases midsummer production
Tall Fescue Type of Festulolium
Main traits for FELINA is high yield potential, persistence, drought resistance and tolerance to high level of subsoil water. FELINA can be used as substitute for meadow fescue with higher yield as result. Compared to meadow fescue and tall fescue, these festulolium varieties have better feeding value - measured by higher content of sugar and energy. FELINA has a good early spring growth as well as a high production late summer.
Festulolium for Finland
FELINA is setting new standards for the geographical extension of the species. In trials in Finland, FELINA has shown higher yield than meadow fescue and acceptable winterhardiness.
