Late heading/maturity type

Confirmed in Europe and USA

Athos has performed well in Europe and this is now confirmed in the USA.

Number 1 in the UK grazing trials

Athos ranked number one in yield in the official NIAB forage grazing trials in the UK.

Excellent fall growth

In addition to high yield, Athos is noted for having good fall growth, which translates into an even yield distribution over the entire growing season.

You should also consider using ATHOS in mixtures with other grasses and legumes, alfalfa in particular.
