Harvested for baleage or haylage in 45 days after planting.

Description

Warm season grasses grow best at a soil temperature of 77°F and higher, but require a soil temperature of at least 60°F to show any real growth. They will produce a ton of silage at half the rain that is required with corn silage. These grasses are ideal for hot and dry environments after germination and produce highly digestible sileage or pasture.

Management

Harvested for baleage or haylage in 45 days after planting. Grazing is usually initiated a week to 10 days earlier. Fertilizer needs are 1 to 1 1/4 units of N per growing day, i.e. 45 to 50 units for first cut and 30-35 units for each cut thereafter. Potassium, phosphorous and sulfur are also needed on most farms. All fertilizer needs are the equivalent of the needs for 100 bushel corn.

Establishment

Usually needs about 10 days to emerge and then can grow 3”-6” per day. Can be planted with a conventional or no-till drill at 1” 1 ½” deep.
