The Ideal Cutting/Conservation Cultivar
Provides very high dry matter yield when used for conservation as hay or silage or when used as green forage - 116% of the 4n standard in the first cut for better economy. The quality is top level with all the benefits of a tetraploid such as easy silage thanks to the higher sugar content and better quality of aftermath cuts compared to diploids.
Healthy Throughout the Season - Cold tolerant
Whether in spring when leaf spot is present or in summer and autumn when crown rust appears, KENTAUR will stay healthy and preserve forage quality. KENTAUR shows good tolerance to cold during winter but also to cold periods after growth has started in spring - again minimising risk of damage to the forage quality.
3 Cuts with High DM and Quality
KENTAUR fulfills the primary goal of a dedicated conservation variety: 3 first cuts with high yields of quality forage.
