Kentaur is an ideal perennial ryegrass for mechanical harvest, or grazing. It provides very high dry matter yield and excellent quality including high sugar content. It also has better
quality of subsequent cuts compared to diploids.

Kentaur maintains season-long health and cold tolerance,
from spring when leaf spot may be present, through fall when
crown rust often appears. Kentaur stays healthy, keeping forage quality high. It shows good tolerance to cold during winter, but also to cold snaps after it breaks dormancy again in
the spring—again minimizing the risk of damage to forage
quality.
