In Germany by DSV seeds. This tall fescue variety shows a good yield distribution over all cuts. Therefore LiPalma is suited for growing under extensive use and dry areas.
- Very winter hardy
- Selected for digestibility
- Late heading
- Very high yielding
- Soft leafed
LiPlama tall fescue is relatively easy to establish, but remember, a good seed bed is at the heart of excellent stands of hay or pasture. It can be no-tilled into existing alfalfa stands at .25 to .50 inches deep immediately after harvest. When seeding in a prepared seed bed, make sure sufficient packing has been done before and after seed is put down. For a faster establishment you can also apply 20 to 30 units of N.
LiPalma can be planted with alfalfa, with grass hay mixes, or simply in monoculture for hay or pasture systems. Remember that LiPalma, like most cool season grasses, stores 90% of food for regrowth after harvest in the bottom 2 to 2.5 inches of the stem. This means that for maximum growth and production at least 3 to 4 inches of stubble should remain after harvest. Also, for top yield, we recommend 1 to 1.5 lbs. of available N for each day of growth. LiPalma can tolerate less that ideal fertility but, like most crops, it gives the best yield and quality in balanced soils. LiPalma is the best grass for stockpile grazing.
