The better of two worlds
HOSTYN is a ryegrass type of festulolium - based on a crossing between italian ryegrass and meadow fescue. This results in a combination of high yield and good persistency.
Yield and Quality
The yield of HOSTYN is high with relatively high sugar contents and good digestibility of organic matter.
HOSTYN is ideal for silage as pure crop or - even better - in mixtures with other grasses like perennial ryegrass, tall fescue types of festulolium and red clover. In such mixtures, HOSTYN delivers early spring growth, high forage yield and persistency, combined with very good feeding value.
HOSTYN has shown good resistance to rust, Dreschlera leaf spot and mildew.
