Certified Organic Kora Tall Fescue
Certified Organic Kora Tall Fescue is an endophyte-free, high yielding, highly palatable tall fescue that is well suited for grazing, stockpiling or haymaking.
Kora’s medium maturity and high palatability make it a great complimentary grass in waterways, pastures and hay. Kora produces durable, high quality pastures that can withstand abuse once they are established.
To achieve this, careful stand management during the first year of establishment is essential for long term productivity.
Kora Tall Fescue was originated in Central Europe and this resulted in Kora being a very cold and drought tolerant variety.
Kora is best adapted to the northern portion of the tall fescue growing areas.

Soil samples should be collected and analyzed well in advance of establishment.
Lime should be applied six months in advance to allow time to react. Phosphorous and potassium should be applied according to soil test recommendation. Lacking a soil test, apply: N= 30 lbs., P= 70lbs. and K= 50 lbs./acre. Appropriate cutting heighth is improtant for plant regrowth. After cutting, there should be leaves remaining on the plant.
