Athos cocksfoot

Athos is a modern cocksfoot with a soft and palatable leaf. It has high annual production and cool-season growth.

Athos is an ideal grass to use in environments where ryegrass and tall fescue struggle to survive due to dry or infertile soils. It is also more tolerant of grass grub and porina than ryegrass. 

Athos is also one of the most successful grasses to use when oversowing onto hill country.
