A newly Australian bred continental tall fescue to suit Australian farming requirements
Bred and grown in Australia
Selected for increased seedling vigour, allowing the plants to get established before soil temperature drops and weed competition becomes an issue.
It has a high level of rust resistance, early on and late in the season, making it suitable for a wide range of environments.
Early heading date to allow for less aftermath heading and a return to vegetative growth as quickly as possible.
Italian ryegrass background to increase digestibility.
The leaves are finer and it has a shorter seed head for improved palatability.
Strong growth in the autumn when feed is in short supply. Strong growth in the early spring to recover from cold winters.
