Tall fescues are making a resurgence in popularity, as newly released cultivars make their way into the market. These new varieties now offer, softer more palatable leaves and higher winter activity or summer dormancy than traditional varieties.
Tall fescue can be slower than ryegrass to establish and seedlings can be pulled out if grazed too early. Before sowing it is important to check that you have got everything right to ensure a successful result. This will ensure you get the best return on the money invested in seed, fertiliser and drilling costs.
