KY 32 FESCUE

#2501 | Festuca arundinacea

Summary

Kentucky 32 is the “New Choice” in tall fescue for forage. It was bred to be endophyte free and safe for horses and cattle to consume.

Tested around the country for forage applications, Kentucky 32 is unique in that it has the persistence of Kentucky 31, and will perform very well as a forage grass in those regions where both summer and winter can be especially tough. Kentucky 32 withstands heat and drought, and its vigorous growth out-competes weeds, diseases, and insect infestations. Kentucky 32 relies on superior genetics for plant strength and vigor.
