- Markedly higher protein content
- Very high tolerance to Verticillium and antrachnose
- High nematode tolerance
- Good standability to preserve yield and quality
- Dormancy group 4
17 tons dry matter per year!
Fado starts out with high production in the first two cuts and remains productive during the summer months due to the deep rooting and excellent drought tolerance.
"Protein x yield" is the recipe that makes the difference
The 17 tonnes dry matter becomes even more valuable knowing they contain close to 20% protein (~ 3.400 kg protein/ha).
Resistance to diseases and stem nematode
The anthracnose resistance is outstanding and the level of resistance to nematodes and verticillium are so good that yield and quality is maintained year after year.
Withstands lodging and hard winters
The fall dormancy is among the lower on the French list (3.4), allowing to resist rather strong winters. The score for standability is so good that the forage can be harvested in good conditions in most circumstances.
Top protein level and good disease tolerance
