An early heading pasture and hay type brome that is fast starting with a slower establishment. But once established it is drought tolerant and persistent and has excellent quality. It does best as a component of mixes with other grasses and legumes. It is also very winter hardy and will persist well in northern climates.
Meadow brome is productive from spring to fall. We are very impressed with summer and fall yields and quality. Meadow brome performs best when it is used in mixes. It heads out early and is not a good match with alfalfa. Excellent Penn State trial data over 3 years of harvest. Montana yielded with the better tall fescue varieties and better than most other grass species.
Recommended seeding rate: 25-35 lbs/A.
