Over the last several years, I have overseeded some of my orchard grass with two different fescues, martin tepek and Teton.  The Tepek is good endophyte, the teton has none.  I have one or two areas that have really thickened up and I believe it is due to the teton but I am not sure.  


Which forage fescues have you had the best luck with in the mid atlantic region?

I planted a bottom field and also thickened up an area along the woods with Bar Optima E34 which has the good endophyte like your Martin.  Planted at 5.5" spacing and is doing great with dense ground coverage and good yield.  Have also heard good things about Kora.
