Preval is very winter hardy and is tolerant of drought, wet soils and close grazing, making is an excellent choice for rotational grazing and high quality hay, with very good regrowth.
Preval is an endophyte free meadow fescue, thus it is not harmful for grazing livestock.
Meadow Fescue is best planted in the spring or early autumn.
Plant 1/4″ depth in a prepared, firm seedbed, do plant too deep. Meadow Fescues do not no-till establish well or establish into competition from the already established grasses. 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.
