Tall Fescue

SF Finesse-Q

oceanic tall fescue

SF Finesse-Q is a high yielding, densely tillered, soft-leaf fescue with semi-late heading. It is extremely persistent due to its dense nature and has no fescue endophyte.

It has an intermediate growth pattern better suited to much of Australia's oceanic climate, and has performed well in trials sown here in 2006.

Its tiller density and high leaf quality make it well suited to dairy, beef and sheep. Its lack of endophyte makes it also suited to grazing by horses, goats and alpacas.
