Stand Establishment

Old World bluestems: (B Dahl, Ironmaster, Spar, and Plains Bluestem) are best adapted to well drained sites of loam, clay-loam, clay, and sandy-loam soils. Stand establishment on sandy soil is more risky, but usually can be obtained. Seeding should be on a firm seedbed, planting at shallow depths (1/4” or less). Seeding rates of 3 to 5 pure live seed (pls) pounds per acre of Old World Bluestems (OWB) plus 1 pls pound of Green Sprangletop are generally recommended. The best results have been obtained when seeding was done with a drill specifically designed to handle “fluffy” grass seeds. Seedbed should be very firm, smooth, and weed free. It is necessary in some regions, such as; western Texas to seed into dead litter residues like wheat stubble remaining from the previous year’s crop to avoid bare ground in effort to eliminate soil erosion.

CHISHOLM FESCUE is an endophyte-free tall fescue cultivar of Tunisian parentage with excellent persistence recently released by the NOBLE RESEARCH INSTITUTE. It was developed to provide livestock producers with a persistent, perennial cool-season grazing option and is adapted to the hot, dry summer environment typical west of Interstate 35 in Oklahoma and Texas where summer-active types fail to survive.Chisholm Fescue

Chisholm is capable of producing high-quality pasture from autumn through spring suitable for grazing livestock before entering summer-dormancy; this fills the forage gap by reducing the need to feed hay and provides a perennial grazing option to complement or replace winter annual plantings. Chisholm tall fescue can be used in both tilled and no-till forage-based livestock production systems.  Chisholm summer-dormant tall fescue seed is a PVP cultivar and commercially licensed to Warner Brothers Seed Company located in Lawton, Okla.  For more information go to www.chisholmfescue.com
