Grazing Brome

(Bromus stamineus Desv)
A special purpose grass for well drained, fertile, high pH soils.

Grazing brome is a perennial grass closely related to prairie grass, it does best on medium to light soils where it can produce a high quality persistent pasture with strong winter growth and drought tolerance. Grazing Brome is useful as a special-purpose pasture for quality winter and summer feed on free-draining, less fertile soils along the east coast. When planted further inland the low winter temperatures reduce its cool-season advantage . Grazing brome requires close frequent grazing to perform well, it fails to persist in wet situations. Brome is best sown when the soil temperature is at 10oC or above.

Suggested sow rate: 25-30 kg/ha alone
