Description

Cocksfoot (Dactylis glomerate) a very persistent grass that grows relatively slowly in the sowing year, but is vigorous in its second and subsequent years.

Cocksfoot is selective in terms of soil conditions. It has a strong root system, so it grows well in dry sandy soils. Another important advantage is that it produces good crop in longer periods of drought. It must be also considered that the Cocksfoot needs a large amount of nitrogen fertilizer and, under favourable conditions, the Cocksfoot is aggressive and suppresses other grass medicines, which is why it is best to grow it in a cleaner. Cocksfoot will not grow in dense, acidic soils and places with high groundwater levels, because it is badly tolerated by flooding. It is also sensitive to spring frosts and autumn night frosts.

Cocksfoot is suitable for conservation and excellent for grazing.
