Early type of festulolium
ACHILLES is a crossing between Italian ryegrass and meadow fescue and belongs to the ryegrass type of festulolium. The result is a variety with a very vigorous growth both in spring and after cutting, but at the same time also with a good persistence.
For cutting purposes
ACHILLES belongs to the same group of festulolium as Paulita and Perun, but with 4-5 days earlier ear emergence. This makes ACHILLES very well suited for mixtures where an early cut is desired.
ACHILLES is participating in trials in many European countries and the results show very interesting properties.
