We offer the best single specie genetics from our current blends, because we know there are times when a producer wants to make additions to the pasture or hay field. Prairie Creek Seed has the top single species with the quality standards needed to help you succeed. Our single species can help you maximize your fields and pastures to their full potential.
Rootmax™ Annual Ryegrass establishes rapidly, which gives high productivity in the planting season. Best suited for grazing, silage, and is great in a cover crop blend. Annual ryegrass increases organic matter and has dense fibrous root mass that can grow 36 inches into the soil. This is a very easy forage to handle and as a cover crop due to winter kill.
Crusader is a flexible and forgiving ryegrass variety. It is a great alternative to forage cereals when Crusader is planted in the spring. While planted in the fall it can extend quality feed past the life span of annual ryegrass. Crusader’s rapid establishment and vigorous growth offer early grazing opportunities and maximum yield potential.
Italian Ryegrass Blend
Green Spirit is a unique blend of tetraploid Italian ryegrass varieties developed for better persistence under grazing and improved traffic tolerance. This blend can provide high dry-matter production, disease resistance to crown rust and improved palatability. These varieties have improved dry-matter production and winter hardiness compared to older cultivars.
Atom is an alternative short-rotation option for high-quality feeding requirements. Atom has a higher tiller density than other prairie grass options. This has resulted in an unequalled tolerance of close, set stocked, grazing. High summer heat tolerance with high protein content makes Atom an ideal pasture for growth in young livestock and lactating dairy cattle. With no endophyte, it is also perfect for horse grazing.
BAROPTIMA PLUS E34
Tall Fescue (Beneficial Endophyte)
