festuca-can't find this one.
falaris-has two meanings (1)coot (the bird) (2) Phalaris nodosa, or canary grass. Probably the 2nd is the one you're looking for.

forage seeds


Explanation:
Please refer to my previous answer. I now believe that those who proposed
"forage seeds" are right. "Semillas forrajeras" are seeds of wild or crop plants found by foraging animals and used for food. The common English term for this is "mast".

Fodder crop and pasture seeds


Explanation:
Beware of those recommending 'forrage seeds'. 'Forrage' desn't exist. It should be spelled with one 'r'. The word pasture is getting very common when farmers talk about fodder crops. In Northern Mexico, even the Department of Agriculture uses 'rye grass' without translating. Fescue=festuca.

Fodder crops and pasture seeds


Explanation:
There are many varieties with different hybrid characteristics.
Beware of those recommending 'forrage' since it is spelled with one 'r'.
In Mexico, the Department of Agriculture uses the term 'rye grass' for the Annual hybrid varieties (like Oregon type). Fescue=festuca.
