Profile

ENSILVIO is a late perennial ryegrass with an excellent winter hardiness and a high yield performance. This is valid for the total dry matter yield and especially for the yield in the first cut. Rust resistance, sward density and low inflorescence foramtion in the following cuts are other good arguments for the variety.
