Meadow Fescue x Italian Ryegrass
PAULITA is tetraploid and with "Italian" appearance, but with better persistency. Winterhardiness is also good due to the meadow fescue parents.
Ideal Partner in Mixtures
The yield of PAULITA is high and with high content of sugar (water soluble carbohydrates). PAULITA is best used for silage in mixtures with other grasses like perennial ryegrass, meadow fescue, timothy or festulolium of tall fescue type and red clover. In such mixtures, PAULITA brings high yield and high forage quality.
In Scandinavia PAULITA is by far outyielding local varieties of meadow fescue - not only in 1st year, but also year 2 and 3.
