Expedia

  • Strong disease profile
  • High early vigour
  • High dry matter yield
  • Suited to favourable and less favourable sites

 

Expedia (FAO 200) is a dual purpose high yielding variety, for growers that are looking for a mid to early variety for the dairy and/or biogas sector. Expedia has the yield potential of an FAO 210/220 variety, which matures earlier than other leading varieties. It also has great silage quality for its class with excellent starch content and cell wall digestibility.


Expedia is slightly earlier than it established sister variety Movanna but has the same powerful vigour and strong yields. It has good resistance to lodging and brackling with a strong disease package.

Expedia is packed in 50,000 seed bags with Thiram and Mesurol treatment.
