Annual bunchgrass. Shiny, dark green smooth leaves. Grows 2 to 3 feet tall. Major uses are mainly pasture although sometimes used for hay or silage. High nutritive quality. Seeding rate is 10 to 15 lb/A in mixtures, or 20 to 30 lb/A alone. September or early October are generally the best time to plant, but November overseeding of warm season grasses can be done along the Gulf Coast. Natural reseeding is common.
