Seed Production of Tall Fescue and Other Cool Season Grasses
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Most of the fescue harvested for seed in Missouri is used for fall and winter grazing. This is an excellent way to maximize the total fescue crop, but often results in seed yields that are lower than would be expected if fescue is managed primarily for seed. For highest seed yields, fescue should be seeded in rows and cultivated. However, this is seldom done in Missouri when the seed crop is secondary to the production of forage. This publication provides information about seed progress of tall fescue and other cool season grasses.
