Bred in extreme conditions
SASKIA is a 59 clone synthetic variety selected from an 8-year-old field in a region with long cold winters.
Main breeding goals were plant vigour, disease tolerance as well as leafyness - and of course persistency & winter survival.
SASKIA produces high quantities for dry matter year after year, with a high protein content. The quality forage exploited during the growing season or stored for winter feeding makes a large contribution to high animal output, whether for meat or milk.
Very winter hardy (Fall dormancy = 3) persistent variety
