DSV launches Valerio —— A new perennial ryegrass with outstanding traits
Sep. 21, 2017
In the official recommendations of the North German Chambers of Agriculture, it is ranked as the best variety in Germany in the late-ripening group. Valerio has many advantages: in its recommendations, the North German Chambers
of Agriculture rates the tetraploid, late perennial ryegrass variety as yielding rel. 105 in dry matter yields and as much as rel. 109 in the first cut. Valerio is particularly suitable for moorland sites. Trials conducted by the Federal Plant Variety Office have certified its low susceptibility to rust, low tendency to winter-kill and cold stress as well as good persistence. These results confirm that the variety is also suitable for other major grassland regions in Germany.
With these outstanding traits, Valerio is currently being tested in numerous international official and private trials. Preliminary findings confirm the German results. Thus Valerio is another candidate on track to becoming a major, new and very high-yielding variety in the DSV portfolio not only for Germany but also for international markets.
