Confederate is a new winter active phalaris bred to replace Maru. It is better suited to 500mm+ rainfall and heavier soil types, with a similar growth habit to Sirosa and Holdfast it requires rotational grazing. Confederate was selected for strong winter activity combined with low alkaloid production and improved late season growth.
