Valuable on light textured soils in dry
areas due to its outstanding drought
tolerance. Most varieties have good winter
hardiness, although somewhat limited in
the year of sowing. The species is rather
slow to establish but persistency is good
under hay, silage, and proper grazing

Intensiv cocksfoot origins from Barenbrug’s continental breeding programme in Romania. The variety
shows early spring growth and a prolonged growing season with high dry matter yields. Due to its
intermediate late heading and absence of re-heading, Intensiv shows an excellent forage quality and
digestibility. The variety is fast establishing after sowing and shows a good resistance to diseases.
Intensiv can be used for both cutting and grazing management or combined in a mixture with lucerne.
