Festulolium – tall fescue type
Hipast is a persistent festulolium forage grass and with its comprehensive ground cover, density and softness it will suit grazing and silage making. It is a result of polycrosses between tall fescue and Italian ryegrass, backcrossed with Italian ryegrass.
Hipast processes persistency and resistance to stressful conditions from tall fescue and from Italian ryegrass qualities such as high yield, high content of sugar, organic matter, digestible fibres, protein and energy.
Resistant and persistent
With its high resistance to rust, snow mold and helminthosporium, Hipast has distanced itself from other festuloliums and will not only suit cold areas with its high winter hardiness but also suit excellent in warm, humid areas afflicted by drought periods and diseases.
Yield and forage quality
Hipast is a late festulolium and it delivers fast regrowth and increasing yield year after year. It will not only deliver an exceptional high yield but one of the qualities which Hipast possesses, is the high content of digestible matter in combination with a high-energy content.
Official trials reveals a high energy content of average 6.0 NEL20 MJ per kg. dry matter with a protein content up to 12.6 hkg per hectare.
Hipast is a late type
