Late type of festulolium
PERSEUS is a crossing between italian ryegrass and meadow fescue and belongs to the ryegrass type of festulolium. The result is a variety with a very vigorous growth both in spring and after cutting, but at the same time also with a good persistence.
For cutting purposes
PERSEUS belongs to the same group of festulolium as PAULITA and PERUN, but with 4-5 days later ear emergence. This makes PERSEUS very well suited for mixtures for intermediate cutting.
Fine forage quality
PERSEUS is participating in trials in many European countries and the results show very interesting properties. Due to the late ear emergence, the feeding value and energy concentration of PERSEUS is very high.
