This event will highlight the entire process of novel fescue conversion, including site prep, varieties, seeding rates and dates, recommended fertilization, weed control and grazing management the following season. It is hosted at a farm where the farmer has enjoyed the success of a fall 2019 planting of novel fescue and a fall 2020 planting that will be germinated for early stand evaluation.
