Tall fescue

Tall fescue grass

The deep-rooted perennial tall fescue grass is great at sequestering carbon and building soil organic matter, especially if grazing system allows long recovery times.

The tall fescue varieties that originate from Europe or America are spring/summer active varieties while those of Mediterranean origin ad winter active and summer dormant.

Tall fescue has a high nutritive value comparing favourably to perennial ryegrass, phalaris and cocksfoot.
