COSIMA ranks as one of the top meadow fescue varieties. The variety shows a low susceptibility for leaf spots, rust, fusarium and bacterial wilt. Her outstanding healthiness has a positive effect on the toxin-encumbrance. The total dry matter yield of COSIMA is one of the best in that segment. Secure yields are caused by a low tendency for lodging combined with a high persistence and winter hardiness. Furthermore, COSIMA has a very low shatting tendency.
