A mix of improved grass varieties with excellent persistence, palatability, and tonnage. Three species mix for maximum versatility. Adding grass to your alfalfa hay consistently gives you higher yields, less crown loss due to winterkill, less insect pressure and better erosion control.
Best Use: Best suited as a high quality alfalfa companion.
Adaptation: Well adapted to all types of soils.
Management: Cut hay based on grass maturity, not alfalfa for maximum feed value. Especially important for first cutting in spring as grass will mature ahead of alfalfa. Cut higher than you would straight alfalfa (3 to 4 inches).
Planting Date: April – May, August 1 – 25
Seeding: 25-30 lbs/acre straight or 5-10 lbs/acre with alfalfa or legume mix. Drill or broadcast and roll. Plant ¼ in. to ½ in. deep.
