Aprilia Tall Fescue

Premium Feed Quality & Soft-Leaved Palatability

Aprilia is a premium, forage tall fescue that delivers outstanding feed quality and soft-leaved palatability. Its improved quality profile enhances livestock selection and improved digestibility, resulting in more pounds of gain. Aprilia is a medium-to-late maturing variety. Its later heading date allows it to maintain enhanced forage quality later in the season.

Aprilia is a proven performer in the worldwide forage markets where forage tall fescue is adapted. It has demonstrated market-leading yield potential, outstanding persistence, rapid establishment, and disease resistance, helping to ensure a productive forage stand year-after-year. Aprilia is recommended for hay or pasture applications; it is suitable for pure stands or in multi-species blends with other forage grasses and legumes.
