Orchard Grass
Orchard Grass OG Dactylis glomerata Long-lived vigorous grass can be established in spring, in summer, or by frost-seeding in late winter. Tall leafy plants grow rapidly even in poor soils, though like any grass it likes good fertility; tolerates moderately drained soils. Seed at 10#/acre, or 4–6# with 8–12# of alfalfa or red clover per acre. Certified organic.

As perennial pasture: Grazing will help overcome its tendency to form coarse bunches. Provides good warm-weather growth.

As perennial hay: Bunching habit will be reduced if sown with red clover or alfalfa. More shade-tolerant than timothy. Makes a leafy palatable hay that is preferred for alpacas and horses.

Additional Information

Farm Seed

Unless otherwise noted, our legume seed is sold “raw”: it has not been inoculated with the appropriate bacteria in a process called rhizocoating.

Organic Seed

We are a MOFGA-certified organic repacker and handler of seed and feed.
All our seed is untreated.

Organically grown seed is labeled OG.
The label ECO after the variety name describes non-certified seed grown without pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers on farms which maintain an active soil-building program. Some farmers eschew certification for a variety of reasons, ideological, economic and otherwise.
