Zorro fescue is a low-growing, early maturing annual grass used for erosion control, and vineyard and orchard cover crops. Zorro Fescue is a good reseeder and is well suited for vineyards or orchards with drip irrigation. Zorro can grow on a wide variety of soil types including areas with sandy low fertility soils, rocky soils, soils with gravel and soils with volcanic pumice. It can be mowed to about 4 inches with good regrowth but should not be mowed once seed heads are starting to become present in the spring -to allow for reseeding. The awns are removed to make the seed more easy to work with. De-awned seed also will have more seeds per pound than seed with the awns still attached.
