Flying A was developed from specially selected genetics that are widely adapted to various soil and climatic conditions. With the stockman in mind, Flying A was bred for higher yields of palatable forage. An earlier maturing variety, Flying A establishes quickly and will transition quickly in the spring to allow warm season grasses to flourish early. Exhibiting characteristics such as high forage yield, excellent crown rust resistance and quick establishment, Flying A is a logical choice to include in a progressive forage production program.
