Festulolium

Festulolium is a cool-season hybrid of ryegrass and Meadow Fescue that combines the quick establishment, high productivity, and palatability of ryegrass with the persistence and heat/drought tolerance of fescue. It works well in pasture mixes and can provide season-long grazing. Festulolium also works well as an alfalfa companion grass and will provide high yields and very high-quality forage for dry hay, haylage, or green chopping. It should not be seeded alone due to its susceptibility to cold injury.
