Good drought tolerance! For hay or grazing. Tall, non-creeping with broad leaves. Hakari requires special management. Give it a 3 to 4 week rest period and leave a 3 to 4 inch residual stubble when mowing or it will thin out severely. Cows love it and milk well on it. It works great mixed with alfalfa for hay. It’s easy to mow and late heading. However, it will head a little in second cutting, but quality does not drop as much as with other grasses. It is very fast to establish but long term persistence is weak. Also likes well drained soil. Recommended seeding rate: 35-45 lbs/A.
