Hello nature lover.....!

How To Replace Toxic Fungus Fescue Pastures

  • Aim for 100% kill of all existing toxic fungus fescue plants
  • Don't allow existing fescue to bloom during the spring prior to fall seeding of MaxQ
  • Use good methods of establishment and management of tall fescue
  • Soil test annually and apply fertilizer and lime according to recommendations
  • Maintain good plant nutrition

During Spring, Prior to Fall Planting Of MaxQ

  • Prevent toxic fescue plants from blooming.
  • Either graze close or clip for hay.
  • Spray herbicide stubble to chemically kill existing toxic fescue prior to blooming.
  • Soil test; apply fertilizer and lime as recommended.
  • Plant summer annual forage, i.e. sorghum Sudan grass or pearl millet. This will provide summer forage and act as a smother crop for emerging toxic fescue plants.
  • Do not feed animals this toxic fescue hay in their paddocks.

During Fall, Just Prior to Planting MaxQ Tall Fescue Seed

  • Graze closely or harvest the summer annual for hay.
  • Spray kill the green stubble.
  • Apply fertilizer as recommended.
  • No-till drill Max Q seed into stubble or into tilled seedbed. Remember to firm the soil with a roller or culti-packer before and after seeding.
  • Do not plant seed deeper than 1/4".
  • Do not plant a companion/nurse crop with MaxQ.
  • Recommended seeding rate is 20 lbs/acre drilled -25 lbs/acre broadcast.
  • Planting dates: September to November 1st in southern states. Mid August to October 1st in mid-western and northeastern states.

During Winter, After Seeding MaxQ Tall Fescue Grass

  • Do not graze seedling pasture.
  • Do not feed toxic fescue hay on newly seeded pastures.

During Spring, New MaxQ Fescue Seeding Management

  • Apply fertilizer as recommended.
  • Do not graze pasture until plants are 8" high or taller and firmly anchored.
  • Flash graze for short periods (2-5 days) or make an early hay cutting. (Cut at early stage.)
  • Do not graze or clip lower than 2-3".
  • Do not graze when soil is wet and soft.

Summer Management Of MaxQ Tall Fescue Pasture

  • Rest your fescue pastures during the summer months.
  • If conditions are favorable use light rotational grazing for short periods.
  • Leave 3-4” of residue after grazing or haying.

Grazing Management For MaxQ Tall Fescue Grass Pastures

  • Apply fertilizer annually as recommended. Apply extra nitrogen in late winter and early fall.
  • Keep forage leafy by grazing heavily or clipping to insure high quality.
  • Rotate cattle more often during periods of heat and drought stress.
  • In spring, intensively graze rapidly growing established stands of MaxQ pasture.
  • Stockpile forage during periods of rapid growth in early fall. (Check with county agent for more information.)
  • Prevent transfer of toxic fescue seeds in manure to MaxQ pasture. Graze a fungus-free forage for three days between toxic fungus fescue (in bloom or seed) and MaxQ pasture.
