MaxQ Tall Fescue Grass Seed - MaxQ enhanced tall fescue provides excellent permanent pastures for cattle, sheep and horses. When cut in early boot stage, it also produces a very high quality hay and provides high quality, abundant forage for a long period of time each year. The highest productivity is September-December and March-June. The best practice is to rest fescue pastures during the summer months.

Type: Cool season perennial grass.

Endophytes: Endophytes (fungus) are important to a tall fescue plant. The fungus aids the plant in being more tolerant to heat and drought stress, plus adds tolerance to some insects and diseases. However, the natural fungi in grass plants produce toxins that are harmful to livestock. MaxQ endophyte provides all the beneficial effects for the plant without producing harmful toxins.

Adaptation: With good management practices tall fescue can produce crude protein levels of 15-16%; TDN in the 60-62% range. However, environmental conditions and management practices will determine individual results.

Uses: For best results and benefits all toxic tall fescue should be killed before trying to establish a stand of fescue with MaxQ.

Nutrition:
A firm seedbed is important for good stand establishment. You can drill into a prepared firm seedbed, no-toll drill into sod or broadcast and pack in seed. Place seed at a depth of 1/4" to 1/2," but never deeper than 1/2". Do not graze or cut seedling stand until it reaches 6"-8" tall. Use only light rotational grazing in the first year, and never graze or cut closer than 2." During periods of heat and drought stress, it is best to rotate cattle more frequently. Consult MaxQ Users Guide for complete planting and management information.

Tolerant to soil acidity and poor drainage, but performs best on soils with good water holding capacity and a pH of 6.0-6.5. Relatively tolerant to drought. Not suited to drought prone, sandy soils.

Management: MaxQ enhanced tall fescue provides excellent permanent pastures for cattle, sheep and horses. When cut in early boot stage, it also produces a very high quality hay and provides high quality, abundant forage for a long period of time each year. The highest productivity is September-December and March-June. The best practice is to rest fescue pastures during the summer months.
