Perun Tetraploid Festulolium
  • Perun Festulolium is an inter species cross combining 80% Italian Ryegrass with 20% Meadow Fescue
  • Perun offers the quality trait from the Italian ryegrass plus the adaption and root depth of the Meadow Fescue
  • This allows for a wider adaption of soils and rainfall zones that in the past have not been able to sustain straight Italian Ryegrass
    Perun has a longer summer shoulder that provides good quality when feed quality traditionally drops
  • With Perun being a fescue cross it prefers to be sown in warmer soil onditions experienced in the early autumn or break
  • Perun can be utilised as a spring sowing option for a summer feed option in good rainfall or irrigated areas
  • Excellent option for stitching into existing pastures such as Lucerne
  • Perun has the ability for low transpiration rates through the leaf surface over the summer period therefore giving it summer toughness
  • Very Good Disease Resistance
  • Great heat and cold tolerance unlike Italian Ryegrasses
  • Recommended sowing with red and white clover to extend the season and animal performance
