Has been successful in renovating rangeland in large areas of South Texas and
Mexico. Good management is of utmost importance. Fertilized according to soil
test; cultivation after first year improves production. Running chisel plow is very
effective in renovating old stands. Protect from grazing until well established;
rotation grazing improves quality. With ample moisture and fertilizer, produces
20,000lb green matter, per acre per month, during warm summer months.
Well adapted in the south into Mexico, on both light and heavy soils that are not t
oo restriced in air space. Soil fertility being more important than texture. Good on
dry or irrigated land, and tolerant to highly alkaline water and soil when
established. Use for pasture, hay and crop rotation.
