Deep rooted fescue very tolerant of stress. As a bunch grass it's growth habit can lead to "tussocky" swards. Can be difficult to establish in cooler seasons.
Perennial 7+ Years
May to August
15t DM per ha.
Most commonly grown as part of a mixture and should be regulary grazed to maintain the quality of the grass and to prevent it from becoming too coarse. Can be difficult to establish in cooler soils.
Less palatable than meadow fescue but has greater tolerance to extremes of weather.
