tall fescue

Highly adaptable to wet and dry conditions.

Tall fescue is adapted to a wide range of growing conditions and grown for hay, pasture and silage. Under good management, tall fescue is easy to establish, survives heavy grazing pressure and hardy. Tall fescue is deep-rooted and forms a dense sod. Tall fescue tolerates wet soils and short periods of flooding, but is also drought tolerant.

Tall fescue has been used as forage for many years. Many older varieties such as Kentucky 31, are

already established in fields or pastures and have many problems that have arose overtime. These problems are due to the infection of the fescue with a fungus called toxic endophyte. Through our research and development we now have new varieties of tall fescue that are endophyte free or endophyte friendly. These should be considered when planting new pastures or renovating older ones.

Estancia

Estancia

Estancia Tall Fescue with ArkShield® is a medium maturing, high yielding forage tall fescue with excellent seedling vigor. Estancia was selected for heat tolerance, forage yield and persistence. Estancia was inoculated with ArkShield® to improve persistence, heat and drought tolerance. Estancia with ArkShield® provides better tolerance to environmental stress while not harming livestock or other grazing animals.
