Brome Grass

Brome Grass

The brome genus is a large family of varied grasses. Some species are extremely winter-hardy and persistent. Others exhibit an indeterminate seeding habit and persist through frequently dropped seed. Bromegrasses require high fertility levels and well-drained soils. Bromegrasses, in general, do well when planted as a companion with alfalfa.

  • Hakari Alaska Brome

    Good drought tolerance! For hay or light grazing. Tall, non-creeping with broad leaves. Very productive and has done well in Pennsylvania and in Midwest trials and has higher digestibility than orchard grass. Forage Analysis in Nov. 99 showed TDN of 90 for Hakari versus 76 for orchardgrass and 91 for ryegrass (at approx. 8 in.). Hakari brome requires special management when grazing! Give it a 3 to 4 week rest period and leave a 3 to 4 inch residual. Cows love it and milk well on it. Hakari brome does require higher fertility than orchardgrass. It works great mixed with alfalfa for hay. It’s easy to mow and is late heading. It will not crowd out alfalfa as much as orchardgrass. It is very fast to establish but long term persistence (over 3 years) is weak. Makes a very soft hay. It likes well drained soil. Seeding rate 8 lbs/acre with 15 lbs alfalfa or a pure stand at 35 lbs/acre.
