Payload is a medium maturity tall fescue, reaching head emergence approximately 2 days later than KY-31 that will maximize season long production. Its strong vigor, large crown size and aggressive regrowth have consistently produced more forage yield. As a forage yield leader, Payload is well adapted for hay production, while its palatability lends itself well to pasture. In-field performance has shown an excellent disease package with superior resistance to stem rust. Growth habit is a wide flag leaf, moderate hight and dark green color. Payload is selected for strong vigor and crown size.
