KEEDYSVILLE, Md. — University of Maryland Extension is partnering up with the Alliance for Grassland Renewal to host a Novel Tall Fescue Renovation Workshop in Maryland. These workshops happen annually in several locations across the region but this is the first time a workshop will be held in Maryland.
Toxic tall fescue reduces livestock weight gains and lowers reproductive performance. This one day workshop focuses on managing tall fescue toxicity and integrating novel tall fescue varieties into a grazing system. Topics for the event include an overview of tall fescue toxicosis, seed and endophyte testing, toxicosis management, economics of transitioning to novel tall fescue, and novel tall fescue establishment and management. Speakers for the event include local producers, company representatives, and Extension specialists and researchers from across the country.
The workshop will take place on March 30, 2022 at the Western Maryland Research and Education Center in Keedysville, MD. For additional details, agenda, and registration information please visit https://grasslandrenewal.org/novel-tall-fescue-renovation-workshop-md-2022/.
