FAO grain 280 | silage 310 | grain type 2


  • high dry matter yields
  • massy habitus
  • high stress tolerance
  • staygreen variety


LEONIDO is a silage and biogas variety which guarantees high dry matter yields in the mid-early to mid-late maturity range. The combination of its fast early vigour with high plant height and its massy growth type make it an ideal variety for silage and biogas usage. LEONIDO features a high stress tolerance with its good resistance to stalk rot worth an extra mention. It shows a long staygreen with the benefit of a prolonged harvest period.
