      Each stem is topped by a cluster of up to 32 side branches, each of which is to 6 inches long and covered with numerous straw-colored flowers. The grass propagates by seed and heavy, woody, creeping rhizomes. The grass is also known as Slough Grass or Ripgut, since the rough blade margins can cut flesh readily.   Many of you have seen the Plant Image Gallery on the Noble Research Institute's Web site, and most News and Views readers have seen the notices about the "plant book" publication set to arrive this summer.

      These native grass seed mixes are composed primarily of non-aggressive clump grasses and are designed for ornamental projects, ecological projects, range land pastures and wildlife use. Native grass seed mixtures are not suitable as erosion control mixtures. Native grass seed mixtures can be combined with wildflowers or planted alone.   The deep roots of native grasses stabilize soil, increase water infiltration, and recycle nutrients. When native grasses are planted in urban environments, their unique qualities can even help to filter polluted runoff. Native rangeland grasses also excel in sequestering carbon to help reduce air pollutants and mitigate the effects of climate.

      base grass or warm-season grass also benefits. Sodseeded pastures offer a higher level of nutrition and enhance animal performance. Any warm-season perennial grass (bermudagrass, bahiagrass, kleingrass or even native grasses) can be overseeded. The problem is competition in late spring between an overseeded pasture and a warm season. Forage Grasses Forage grasses include (Crop Group 17) introduced and native grasses for pasture, grazing, and hay crops. Perennial pasture grasses are included in this summary because of the vast acreages of land are not well-suited for row crops but are very important in the total Texas agricultural economy.

In general, cool season grass species provide higher nutritional quality than warm season grasses.

In contrast, warm season grasses generally yield more than cool season grasses. Each type and species, however, offers its own unique qualities and benefits to the forage.

Warm-season grasses provide good quality, actively growing forage during the hot summer when cool-season grasses and many legumes are dormant or unproductive. A forage program that includes both warm-season and cool-season grass pastures will provide a more constant forage supply over the growing season.

In order to make this decision, it is essential to know the ways that forages are classified. Each forage species is distinguished as being a grass or a legume, an annual or a perennial, and a warm-season or a cool-season plant.

Please use that criteria to locate a specific forage species that will fit your needs. Grasses. Legumes. Some commonly grown forage grasses are not recommended by Auburn University.

The erect culms are 80 to cm tall, solid or hollow below. The leaf blades are flat to involute or rolled in at the margins, with a prominent midrib.For instance, suppose a pound bag of tall fescue with a germination value of 80% and a purity value of 90% is purchased.

According to the definition of % PLS, only 72% of the bulk seed is pure live seed (90% x 80%). This means that only 72 of the pounds of bulk seed purchased can germinate and produce the desired crop.Search Arkansas Forage Images - Forage Image ID.
