- Very high yield of DM
- Intermediate heading, suited for grazing
- Better feeding value than tall fescue
- Adapted to dry and wet conditions
Robust and persistent
Fojtan is the result of a crossing between italian ryegrass and tall fescue. The appearance of Fojtan is much like tall fescue and the two species share many properties: Very high yield potential in combination with high persistency, drought resistance and tolerance to periodical flooding. Main difference is the better feeding value in Fojtan.
The feeding value (energy concentration) of Fojtan is in-between tall fescue and perennial ryegrass. In a mixture with i.e. ryegrasses and/or white clover, Fojtan will deliver good forage suitable for most uses.
Good for grazing
Fojtan is of the same type as the well-known variety Hykor, but has 4-6 days later ear-emergence. This makes Fojtan well suited for grazing and a perfect partner in mixtures with intermediate diploid perennial ryegrass, where Fojtan improves persistency and drought tolerance.
