Liherold is a very impressive, persistent and healthy Meadow fescue variety. Its advantages are the dry matter production at the beginning of plant development and in the yield in the first cut. Liherold also achieved best marks in the essential characteristics yield at regrowth, persistence, winter hardiness, tolerance to Rust and total dry matter yield. Due to these characteristics, Liherold belongs to the best varieties in the German and European portfolio of Meadow fescues.
- NEW variety out of Germany
- A top performer in trials from Wisconsin to Kentucky
- A standout in our Rockville plots for the past three years
- Fast Establishing
Of all the different grass species, Liherold has one of the broadest ranges of application. From dry hay to pasture, from heavy soils to light, meadow fescue can provide good tonnage and excellent quality. Liherold is a semibunch type, cool season, European grass that has exceptional winter hardiness. It will yield slightly less than tall fescue and orchard grass but has better fiber digestibility and palatability for grazing applications.
Liherold will establish faster than tall fescue or orchardgrass but will still benefit from a nurse crop. Seeding depth should be between 0.25 and 0.5 inches or when planted with a legume, 0.25 inches is preferred. Use a low rate of a small grain or combine with festulolium or ryegrass to help suppress weeds. Liherold is a good no-till option but will not express itself until the following year.
Liherold needs fertile soils for optimum performance. They work well in intensively managed grazing or hay production if not mowed lower than 3 inches.
