Tall Fescue

SF RoyalQ-100

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.
