Laura Meadow Fescue

Laura meadow fescue establishes very quickly which makes it very competitive with perennial ryegrass. The first cut yields are very high combined with an excellent leafy regrowth in the aftermath. Therefore Laura has high yields of very digestible dry matter in all cuts. Because of the very leafy regrowth of this variety it is also very suitable for grazing or a combination of cut and grazing managements. The use of meadow fescue is especially recommended in cold and wet areas.
