9OREC Echelon Orchard Grass

In stock

Winter Hardy | Persistent | 50 lb Bag

Echelon Orchard Grass has good winter hardiness, tolerance to shade, and moderate tolerance to drought. It heads extremely late in the season and is one of the best fall producers on the market. Notable characteristics include persistent yield, tremendous eye appeal, erect-growing plant, and late maturity.

Echelon is effective in grazing and haying situations. It can be seeded alone or as a mixture component. For seeding, sow with a white clover. For silage, sow with a red clover or alfalfa. Given the late maturity and excellent winter hardiness, Echelon is an ideal companion with alfalfa. Inter-planting with alfalfa can be used to improve stand yield, extend longevity, and reduce the risks of winterkill - pest damage.
