Cocksfoot

Yarck Cocksfoot, is a medium flowering porto type cocksfoot, which was selected to be more suitable to the Australian environment in regions with a medium or short growing season. Porto plants were carefully selected from the Mansfield area with the breeding criteria for Yarck focusing on vigorous seedling establishment, high winter growth, and softer and more palatable leaves. Yarck also has the ability to respond and grow with summer rainfall.
Yarck Cocksfoot has proven to be very fast out of the ground which is crucial when competing with weeds and other species sown in the mix.
