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.

Cocksfoot

Valuable on light textured soils in dry areas due to its outstanding drought tolerance. Most varieties have good winter hardiness, although somewhat limited in the year of sowing. The species is rather slow to establish but persistency is good under hay, silage, and proper grazing management.
