Hello nature lover.....!

TALL FESCUE Festuca arundinacea
Tall fescue is a cool season, aggressive perennial bunchgrass.  Tall Fescue produces an abundance of basal leaves of up to 12 inches in length.  It can grow to heights of 2 to 4.5 feet if left un-mowed.  Tall Fescue is used for lawns, pastures and hay production along with erosion control from Canada into Florida.  In warmer climates is performs as an annual grass. Tall Fescue was introduced to the US from Europe in early 1900's.  Today there are hundreds of varieties grown.  K31 (Kentucky-31) is a pasture selection that is probably the best known of all Tall Fescues.  Today there are newer "safe endophyte" and "low endophyte" varieties available that are suitable for forage use without the toxicity of older varieties.

PLANTING RATES:
Pastures: 25-30 lbs./acre. Broadcast.
Lawns: 8-10 lbs / per 1000 sq. ft.
Soil pH should be 6.5 - Plant 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep.
Plant in spring or early fall for best results. 
Can be planted from September through May in most areas.
Contact Seedland.com for quotes on 1000+ lbs.

Kentucky 31 Tall Fescue:
K31 is a hardy perennial Fescue that produces an open type growth and abundant bottom leaves.  Deep rooted, tolerant of alkaline and acid soils, and is a very drought tolerant grass.  Kentucky-31 will go dormant under stress (heat / drought / low temperatures)  With good production practices makes an adequate forage or hay crop.  Planted on millions of acres of pastures, lawns and roadsides throughout the South East.  Okay for cattle under proper rotational management but seldom recommended anymore due to supply of improved "friendly endophyte" varieties...  Not recommended at all for use with horses.

Improved Forage Varieties:
There are now available newer improved forage Tall Fescues that have less toxicity to cattle and horses thus allowing for more gain and less digestive problems.  MaxQ and Jesup Endophyte free are two examples.  These newer varieties are also selected on their ability to provide an increase in total production and less susceptible to diseases.
