Shady Pasture Forage Mix

Shade tolerant pasture grass seed mix.

Best Use: Areas with less than 3 hours of direct sunlight.

Adaptation: This shade resistant grass seed is intended for use in areas next to tree lines or on the inside edges of groves. For increased productivity, add 1-2 lbs/acre of white clover.

Recommendations: These grasses will never be as productive or traffic tolerant as they would be in full sun. Heavy traffic and/or dense shade may require frequent reseeding. Avoid full shade.

Planting Date: April – May, August 1 – 25

Seeding: 25-35 lbs/acre. Drill or broadcast and roll. Plant ¼ in. to ½ in. deep.



Your hay or pasture grass seed has to work for you—adapted to the purpose, place, and management you have in mind. We usually carry two or more varieties of each species, ranging from high quality forage to more economical selections when forage quality is not as vital. We also have several hay and pasture grass mixes that combine the advantages of several species in one bag.
