Festuca pratensis

Meadow fescue

Late heading date – excellent persistence

Main strengths

Darimo has an easy establishment, even when it is sown with perennial ryegrass.
The yield of the first cut is very high and the aftermath gives a lot of good quality forage.
The result is a very digestible forage during the overall production cycle.

How to manage Darimo

Because of its leafiness, it is very much appreciated by the cattle when grazed.
The excess of production can be mown. Meadow fescue is very well adapted for cool and humid conditions.
Darimo is a very persistent variety suited for long term mixtures in order to ensure a forage production when other species start yielding less.
