Red River Crabgrass Seed - 5 Lbs.

Red River Crabgrass Seed

Red River is an improved crabgrass that thrives during the hot, dry months. Best known for its ability to spread and regrow after grazing, this prolific reseeder was one of the first forage type crabgrass varieties developed.
Crabgrass is a high quality, high yielding summer annual forage that is excellent for grazing and haying. Red River Crabgrass can grow to around 3 ft. high, and produces enough seed for volunteer re-establishment.

This variety of crabgrass produces a highly digestible forage (up to 73% NDFd) and high crude protein content (25-30% early season; 15-20% mid-summer; 10% late season). Areas of adaption extend from Nebraska, south and east to the Gulf and Atlantic coasts. Great for revitalizing summer pastures.

Received my order quickly. I am using various methods of seeding to see which works best: broadcast one section of pasture that had already been spread with a crumbled manure. Broadcast another area of pasture, THEN spread manure over that and then used golf cart to flatten it. On yet a third area, I mixed seed in directly with my manure before spreading it. Curious to see which works best. I use a Newer Spreader which crumbles horse manure into fairly thin layer.
