Teff is a self-pollinated, warm season annual grass which can be harvested multiple times during the growing season as dry hay, silage or pasture. As a fast-growing crop, Teff combines excellent forage quality with high yield during a relatively short growing season. Over the last 10 years Teff has gained momentum as a forage crop and several new, improved types have been developed and commercialized. Moxie Teff combines the best genetics with Barenbrug's Yellow Jacket Enhanced Seed Coating. It is a palatable, drought tolerant variety with low nutrient requirements.
Yellow Jacket is Barenburg's proprietary seed coating, which improves establishment under adverse conditions and increases yield. It can hold up to 600 times its weight in water, allowing the seeds to make better use of the water available. Yellow Jacket coating also increases fungicide and pesticide effectiveness.
