Orchardgrass is adapted to the more fertile soils in the Limestone Valley/Mountains Regions and some upper Piedmont sites. However, orchardgrass is not recommended for the lower Piedmont or Coastal Plain regions as it pertains to Georgia.

Orchardgrass is adapted to the more fertile soils in the Limestone Valley/Mountains Regions and some upper Piedmont sites. However, orchardgrass is not recommended for the lower Piedmont or Coastal Plain regions as it pertains to Georgia.

It is a bunch grass that produces an open sod and produces excellent quality forage. It is not as persistent as tall fescue. Even under ideal conditions, stands usually thin after 2 to 3 years and will need to be renovated. Though it can be grazed, orchardgrass stands will generally thin more rapidly in pastures. Orchardgrass stands are easier to maintain if they are cut for hay.

Mixtures of tall fescue and orchardgrass are widely used in hayfields in the upper Piedmont and Mountain regions. Orchardgrass is also a great companion crop with a legume, such as red clover or alfalfa. A common use of orchardgrass is to seed it into alfalfa stands that have thinned.

Orchardgrass is best established on a prepared seedbed, though no-till establishment into an alfalfa or red clover stand will result in satisfactory results. Orchardgrass should be established in the fall. Plant 12 15 lbs of orchardgrass per acre when using a grain drill or sod seeding drill. When seed are broadcast and incorporated by disking or dragging, increase the seeding rate to 15 to 20 lbs per acre.

500lbs orchardgrass order July 21, 2014
Reviewer: Phillip Schroder from Lilburn, GA United States  
Easy online ordering. Delivery via UPS to my front door.

The only odd thing was that the entire order did not ship on the same day but was spread out over a few days. This did not bother me at all but you should plan accordingly when ordering in order to have seed in plenty of time for planting.
