Orchardgrass

Orchardgrass is a very high-yielding, bunch-type grass that is an excellent companion grass with alfalfa or red clover. It starts growth early in spring and develops rapidly. It can be used for hay, pasture, silage, or green chop. Orchardgrass is more drought and heat tolerant than Timothy, perennial ryegrass, or Kentucky bluegrass. It will generally persist longer than other cool-season grasses in frequently cut, properly managed alfalfa mixtures.
