Aurora is a robust, summer active tall fescue best suited to irrigation or regions of reliable summer rainfall. With its deep rooted attributes Aurora exhibits impressive persistence and is an excellent option where stressful hot dry periods may limit yield or persistence of perennial ryegrass. Aurora has been selected for its high resistance to leaf rust which, combined with its impressive seasonal dry matter yields, is an excellent alternative to older type continental fescues.
