SWAJ

Outstanding Winter Hardiness & Soft-Leaved Palatability

SWAJ is a Nordic tall fescue bred for its winterhardiness; specifically, its tolerance to harsh winter conditions characterized by frost, snow and ice. Selected for soft-leaved palatability and feed quality, SWAJ provides improved digestibility and more pounds of gain. Its ideal maturity provides complimentary timing and blend compatibility with most hay and pasture uses.

SWAJ has a bunch type growth habit, average flag leave size and tall plant height delivering more biomass. A strong disease package includes resistance to crown rust.
