Barenbrug commercialised this variety due to the collaboration with AFBI. Moira shows the highest yield overall with a outstanding spring yield.

 

Good ground cover

Diploïd varieties show a higher groundcover than tetraploid variety. Moira is a diploid variety with a good ground cover compared to other diploid varieties. This means that the variety has a high sod density.

 

Dual purpose

In Northern Ireland, varieties are tested in different management systems to simulate grazing and cutting systems. Moira performs in both systems very well and shows a high persistence which makes this a dual purpose variety
