MaxQ Tall Fescue Grass Seed For Pasture

Festuca arundinacea shreb
Cows Grazing MaxQ Jesup Tall Fescue Pasture
MaxQ Tall Fescue Grass Seed - MaxQ enhanced tall fescue, a cool season grass,  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. Highest productivity, September-December & March-June. Best practice is to rest fescue pastures during the summer months.

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. Please scroll down for important planting information.

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. To increase productivity gains - Add Patriot Clover to your MaxQ Pasture.

Planting MaxQ Tall Fescue Grass

For best results and benefit all toxic tall fescue should be killed before trying to establish a stand of fescue with MaxQ tall fescue grass seed.

Important Planting Note: The friendly endophytes in MaxQ Tall Fescue have a limited lifespan and must be planted by May 10th of each year to ensure that the plants have active (live) friendly endophytes. For instance if you buy the MaxQ Tall Fescue seeds in the fall they must be planted by May 10th of the following year.  We recommend fall planting of MaxQ Tall Fescue seed where possible.
  • Date: Southern and Southeastern States; Sept.1 to Nov.1 Mid-South, Midwest and Northeastern States Aug.Adaptation Map For MaxQ Tall Fescue Grass 15 to Oct. 1 or spring planting in March and April
  • Method: A firm seedbed is important for good stand establishment. You can drill into prepared firm seed bed, no-till 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".
Rate: 20 lbs. per acre in prepared seedbed and 25 lbs. per acre sod-seeded in stubble.

Management: 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.
