Featured Annual Ryegrass
Bashaw Tetraploid Annual Ryegrass Means BIG GAINS!
- High Yields
- Quick Establishment
- Excellent Nutritional Value
Best time to plant seed:
Seed Bashaw in the Fall. Fall plant no later than 45-60 days before first killing frost. Versatile, easy to establish, disease resistant, deep dense rooted, cool season grass.
- Plant 20 to 25 pounds per acre for pasture production. Increase seeding rate to 25% - 50% for no-till seeding and up to 50% for broadcast seeding or poor planting conditions.
- Bashaw is one of the easiest grasses to establish. It may be sown on clean-burned stubble, prepared or unprepared seedbed. Bashaw will tolerate wetter soil conditions.
- When seeding into prepared seedbed, lime and fertilized according to a soil test and control weeds for best results. At planting, applying 35-40 lbs/acre of nitrogen fertilizer is recommended to ensure good establishment.
- In prepared seedbed, seed should be covered with ¼ to ½ inch of soil with either drag chains behind the seed drill or using a drag harrow for covering broadcast seeding.
- Pulling a cultipacker or light roller over the field after seeding will give good seed-to-soil contact and promote more vigorous seedling growth.
- Works well with Legumes and Brassicas.
