A new release Barenbrug variety selected for drought tolerance. Arsenal was selected for plant vigor, seedling emergence from a deep planting depth, forage and seed yield, and seed mass under dryland environments.
Arsenal had greater seedling establishment and persistence over years than other varieties with similar genetics. Forage yield, protein and digestibility exceeds that of many other varieties of meadow brome.
Arsenal expands the use of meadow bromegrass from irrigated pastures to non-irrigated pastures and rangelands with 13 inches or more annual precipitation, providing livestock producers with high yielding nutritious forage that is winter hardy and drought tolerant.
Key Features of Arsenal Meadow Brome:
- Good establishment and growth in droughty conditions
- Slower establishment than many other grasses, but long-lasting
- Exceptional winter hardiness
- Early spring growth
