Leona is a new prairie grass for Australian producers who are looking for improved productivity, quality and persistence. Leona has been selected for increased seedling vigour resulting in faster establishment which can lead to a reduced time to the first graze. Palatability of Leona is exceptional and, with the improved winter yields, results in high quality feed at a very valuable time of year. Leona has the ability to produce excellent quantities of seed which gives improved persistence.
Minimum 500mm rainfall per annum unless irrigated
