Tall fescue seed production in western Canada

Description

Tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) is used for forage and turf purposes around the world. Native to central Europe, the plant was introduced to the U.S. in the late 1800s and into Canada in the early 1920s from England. Before the early 1980s, tall fescue varieties were developed mainly for forage production, but since that time, more turf-type varieties have been developed for recreational uses.
