Meadow foxtail

Alopecurus pratensis


Meadow foxtail is a perennial that forms loose tussocks, and its inflorescence emerges earlier than that of any fodder grass. Its good winter-hardiness allows it to achieve high yield performance when it is cut at the right time, cropped several times and provided with enough nutrients. Its importance in cultivation is limited, however, since it is only suitable for meadows in moist to damp locations.
