Forage Chicory

Not a grass, but a perennial, broadleaved forb that produces leafy growth high in nutritive and mineral content (if properly managed). Deep taproot provides tolerance to drought conditions. Chicory provides both spring and summer forage. Very persistent.


Best Use:

An excellent companion for grass pastures.


Well adapted from heavier-tolighter soils due to its deep taproot.


Manage grazing so that chicory doesn’t get too mature. Loses palatability when allowed to head out.

Planting Date:



4-6 lbs/acre alone or 2-3 lbs/acre in a mix. May be drilled or broadcast.
