The name “Festulolium” is a combination of Lolium, the genus of ryegrass, and Festuca, the genus of fescue. That makes sense, because this cool-season forage grass combines good qualities from each.
Festulolium is best utilized in grazing environments. Along with perennial ryegrass, it is well-suited to heavy grazing. Festulolium seeds should be planted at 30 to 35 lbs. per acre alone, or at 5 to 15 lbs. per acre if included in a combination with other species. These other species could include clovers, birdsfoot trefoil or grasses like tall fescue, meadow fescue or orchardgrass. Taller species in the seeding mix should be avoided.
