Continental tall fescue
SF RoyalQ-100 is a new tall fescue cultivar from a breeding program involving Mediterranean and Continental genetics, showing higher winter production than the continental cultivars and more even production through the year than the Mediterranean cultivars.
It has high forage quality due to low aftermath heading, with digestibility levels in late spring and summer similar to ryegrass, and higher than other tall fescue cultivars. It has excellent rust resistance.
It is very high yielding, and in overseas trials has shown up to a 36% increase in consumption compared to other fescues.
SF RoyalQ-100 is a replacement option for Quantum and Advance with high yields, high quality and good persistence, but better winter activity.
|High yields all year round||Better suits livestock feed requirements|
|Better winter production||More feed when needed compared to other continental types. Variety suited to dairy production|
|High forage quality||Higher intake by grazing animals|
|Excellent heat tolerance||Higher summer forage yields Increased persistence|
Suited to all livestock types, silage and hay
16-20kg/ha with clovers and herbs
