Hard defoliation (e.g. sheep)
As expected for a small leaved variety the ground cover under hard defoliation is good - even very good for GALWAY.
More surprisingly; GALWAY shows good ground cover in autumn after light defoliation, proving that the variety is very versatile and adapts to the type of use.
The spring yield in second and third year is good, as a result of the good persistency and early start in spring.
