A tall-growing, high yielding, sod forming perennial grass. Excellent winter hardiness, persistence and disease resistance. Excellent quality if cut/grazed early.

 

Best Use:

Harvested as silage or hay, or used for pasture. Excellent quality if cut/ grazed early. Plant in pure stands or mixed with legumes.

Adaptation:

Well adapted to wet soils, tolerant to both poor drainage and drought conditions. Mature stands can persist in standing water. Tolerant of acidic soils.

Management:

Poor competitor as a seedling and slow to establish. Palatability good when maintained in early- to midvegetative stages. Manage grazing and rest periods: begin grazing at 10-12” and remove animals at 4-5”. Will not tolerate close grazing. For hay, cut at least three times per year.

Planting Date:

March-May, Aug. 1-25

Seeding:

8-10 lbs/acre alone or 2-4 lbs/acre in a mix.
