Intensiv cocksfoot origins from Barenbrug’s continental breeding programme in Romania. The variety shows early spring growth and a prolonged growing season with high dry matter yields. Due to its intermediate late heading and absence of re-heading, Intensiv shows an excellent forage quality and digestibility. The variety is fast establishing after sowing and shows a good resistance to diseases.
Intensiv can be used for both cutting and grazing management or combined in a mixture with lucerne. Particularly suited for areas with severe winters.
