It is characterized by a high production potential, but also by a higher quality of the feed provided by the high protein content and the high degree of digestibility. Adaptability to the growing conditions in Romania makes it an alternative, especially for farms with a zootechnical profile in our country, but also for those whose main objective is plant production.
