Endophyte Regional Trials

DLF have been developing novel endophytes for 20 years, and they have been intensively tested for insect tolerance and animal performance.  They are also tested on nine farm sites in regions where ryegrass comes under pressure from damaging insects like black beetle, porina and grass grub.  Measurements are made for pasture growth and persistence, and insect species and densities.
