A cool season perennial grass. Orchardgrass is used for pasture, hay and silage, and when grown in combination with legumes, (red clover, ladino white clovers, and lespedeza) it produces an abundance of quality forage. Orchard grass requires good management since it is less competitive than tall fescue. Close continuous grazing will weaken stands. Great quality for horses, cattle, and all wildlife.
Seed Rate 15 to 25 lbs. acre.
Plant Sept 1st thru Nov. 15th and Feb. 1st thru April 1st.
