Area of Adaptation: USDA Hardiness Zone: 4 & 5 Adapted to good soils and does best on high fertility. Wet—acceptable. Orchardgrass and Chicory do not like wet soil Drought—fair to good. Orchardgrass and Chicory have good drought tolerance but ryegrass is poor. pH range—6.0 and higher
Grazing Management: Turn livestock in when about 8-10 inch of growth and remove when 3-4 inches remain. Have paddocks designed to get all livestock on and off within a maximum of 3 days.
Cutting Management: Cut leaving a 3-4 inch stubble height. Orchardgrass yields, regrowth and persistence will decrease with short cuttings. Wide swath management recommended.
Stand life: Approximately 4-5 years in most situations. Overgrazing can be very hard on orchardgrass persistence.
Traffic Tolerance: Very Good. Dip
Seeding Rate: 25-35lb/acre.
Cultipacker seeders or narrow spacing drills preferred. Use large seed box
Depth: 1/8-3/8 inch
