SF Medly is a Mediterranean cocksfoot with high winter growth and moderate summer dormancy. Bred in France, it has been trialed in Australia under hot dry summers
After initial establishment, has maintained population density better than other traditional cocksfoots.
SF Medly produces more autumn/winter feed than traditional cocksfoots and will produce feed into early summer in long growing season environments.
It can be sown as the sole perennial grass with sub-clover, or in a mix with other summer active cocksfoot varieties for all year round feed. It is also suited to sowing at 0.5-2kg/ha with lucerne.
|Strong seedling vigour||Improved establishment. Greater first year yields|
|Mid season flowering||Produces more feed in 500-700mm rainfall zone|
|Highly winter active||More winter feed when it is needed most|
|Summer dormancy (winter rainfall regions)||Improved persistence over traditional cocksfoots. Similar spring feed to Junee|
Suited to all livestock types, silage and hay
4-6kg/ha as a sole grass
1-3kg/ha in pasture mixes
