This article presents the results of studies on the effectiveness of creating a seed grass festulolium under the cover of grain crops. It has been established that in order to obtain a yield of 8–10 centners per hectare and a highly profitable production of seeds, the laying of the grass stand should be carried out under the cover of winter wheat or triticale at the earliest opportunity to start mechanized work. The seeding rate of festulolium seeds should be 4 million seeds per hectare in case of planned application of nitrogen fertilizers for grain crops (at a dose of N60) and 6 million germinated seeds per hectare (with increasing nitrogen dose to N90–120).
