Festuca pratensis

Meadow fescue

Persistant and winter hardy

Growing characteristics
LAURA establishes very quickly which makes it very competitive with perennial ryegrass. The first cut yields are very high combined with an excellent leafy regrowth in the aftermath. Therefore LAURA has high yields of very digestible drymatter in all cuts. Because of the very leafy regrowth of this variety it is also very suitable for grazing or a combination of cut and grazing managements.

The use of Laura
The use of meadow fescue is especially recommended in cold and wet areas. LAURA has proven a very good persistence in Austria with high yields also in 5-6 years leys. This tells about the very fine winter hardiness and aggressiveness of the variety.
