Of all the different grass species, KingFisher Galaxy has one of the broadest ranges of application. From dry hay to pasture, from heavy soils to light, KingFisher Galaxy can provide good tonnage and excellent quality. KingFisher Galaxy is a semi bunch type, cool season, European grass that has exceptional winter hardiness. It will yield slightly less than tall fescue and orchardgrass but has better fiber digestibility and palatability for grazing applications.
KingFisher Galaxy will establish faster than tall fescue or orchardgrass but will still benefit from a nurse crop. Seeding depth should be between 0.25 and 0.5 inches, or when planted with a legume, 0.25 inches is preferred. Use a low rate of a small grain or combine with festulolium or ryegrass to help suppress weeds. KingFisher Galaxy is a good no-till option but will not express itself until the following year.
KingFisher Galaxy needs fertile soils for optimum performance. They work well in intensively managed grazing or hay production if not mowed lower than 3 inches.
