Bonus Teff Grass Seed - 5 Lbs.
Bonus Teff Grass
is a fine stemmed, warm-season, annual grass that produces
multiple crops of high quality forage. Bonus is one of the best performing
teff grasses across various university trials and can produce
high quality forage in a short growing season.
It can be used
for all classes of livestock and produces excellent hay.
Bonus has broad adaptation and can be used for all
classes of livestock, including horses, dairy, beef, and
sheep. Use Bonus for hay production, pasture and as an
emergency forage crop. Bonus may also be seeded into
thinning alfalfa stands.
A soil test is highly recommended as teff needs adequate
phosphorous, potassium and sulfur for optimum
growth. Appliyng 50 pounds of nitrogen per acre at
planting will be sufficient for good forage production.
Additional amounts of nitrogen may be needed after
each cutting. For optimum forage quality, teff should
be harvested in the pre-boot to early boot stage,
approximately 50 days after planting at a cutting height
of 3 to 4 inches. Harvest regrowth in 35 to 45 days
depending on environmental conditions. Attaining a
soil samples and following soil test recommendations
is a good way to ensure high quality forage.
As with all teff grass, Bonus requires a frost-free growing
season. Avoid sowing seeds too deep and too far
apart. Ideal depth for most forage seeds is 1/8-1/4
inches. Planting seeds deeper than 1/4 inch may not
allow them to establish. Sufficient seed-to-soil contact
is extremely vital. Rolling or packing the soil after seeding
can ensure this. If no-tilling, the right seeding depth
is 1/4 inches deep. Bonus can be broadcast seeded
followed by harrowing or packing.
