Bred for Australian farmers

Confederate phalaris is a new winter active phalaris bred to replace Maru. It is better suited to 500 mm+ rainfall and heavier soil types. It has a similar growth habit to Sirosa and Holdfast. The selection criteria was for strong winter activity combined with low alkaloid production and improved late season growth.

As a companion species, Confederate can be sown with legumes to improve feed quality and increase animal productivity.
