Savvy

  • Very high yielding cocksfoot providing high production levels in all seasons
  • Low aftermath heading and soft leaves helping to maintain palatability and quality in summer
  • SAVVY was bred for high disease tolerance
  • Replacement for Kara cocksfoot

 Cocksfoot is well known for its drought tolerance, ability to tolerate lower fertility soils and many insect pests. SAVVY retains all these features, while adding much greater animal acceptability which many older cocksfoot varieties lack.

SAVVY cocksfoot is a very leafy densly tillered cocksfoot with high levels of production in all seasons. Unlike most cocksfoot varieties, SAVVY has exceptional disease resistance, meaning plants stay green, healthy and more palatable for longer.

SAVVY has also been bred to tolerate hard sheep grazing, and to be softer and more palatable to animals.

SAVVY adds a new dimension for farmers struggling with perennial ryegrass persistence in dryland conditions with pests. For these farmers SAVVY has high yield, is easy to graze, and provides a good quality forage.
