Festulolium borrowed from ryegrass such properties as a high content of sugars and metabolic energy in dry matter, good eating and digestibility, since it forms a large number of tender, well-leafed shoots. It grows back quickly after mowing. Unlike ryegrass, it is less prone to flower formation in subsequent cuts. From fescue, festulolium inherited longevity, high winter hardiness, vitality, good tolerance to trampling and drought resistance. However, some hybrids have reduced seed productivity or are generally infertile, which must also be taken into account when organizing seed production of this crop.
