Supple Leaf Tall Fescue Seed
Tall Fescue in some regions is valued as a high yielding grass and is considered coarse in texture and of poor quality, however with new developments in breeding, new Supple Leaved Tall Fescues have been bred. They still have the traditional benefits of being very tolerant to drought and water logging but its improvements in yield are now very similar to Perennial Ryegrass coupled with high digestibility and palatability too.
Supple leaf tall fescue would suit dry, drought prone soils and also very wet heavy soils due to the hardy nature of the species. This relatively early heading grass is well suited to grazing in mixtures such as Sovereign, Crusader, Herald and Kingdom. The quantity of Supple Leaf Tall Fescue to add into these mixes varies from 2.00 kg – 4.00 kg/acre. It is suggested to reduce the Perennial Ryegrass content within the mixture so that the seed rate is not too high and it keeps the mix cost effective.
