Tall Fescue PLUS in mixtures 

Tall Fescue PLUS varieties are suitable to go into all types of mixtures. They can be used as a replacement for perennial ryegrass, meadow fescue and tall fescue and complement perennial and hybrid ryegrasses along with lucerne or red clover.

They increase the persistency of a mixture because they are able to tolerate challenging and stressful conditions. This is because they have a deeper rooting system, which means a greater tolerance to dry conditions
