The aim of this experiment was to compare growth and production parameters of the first Slovak cultivar of xFestulolium with Felina and Hykor. The experiment was conducted at the Demonstrating and research base of Department of Grassland Ecosystems and Forage Crops, Slovak Agricultural University in Nitra (Slovak Republic) with controlled moisture conditions (glass house) in 2017 (one year pot experiment). We compared new intergeneric hybrid Lenor with Felina and Hykor. In the experiment were evaluated average height (mm) and dry matter (DM) yields (g). New intergeneric hybrid Lenor was in every cut highest (P < 0.05) (59.57 mm) in compare with controlled varieties Felina (47.89 mm) and Hykor (47.07 mm). Lenor had higher dry matter yields than Felina and Hykor in the first and second cut. In the 3rd cut were not observed significant differences in dry matter yields. The highest DM yields were measured by Hykor (2.82 g). In sum of three cuts reached Lenor highest dry matter yield (4.99 g). This measured value was higher (P < 0.05) compared with Felina’s production.
