Bonus Teff Grass

Bonus Teff is an annual, fine-stemmed, warm season grass that can be used for hay production, pasture, and as an emergency forage crop. It can be used for all classes of livestock, including horses, cows, and sheep. Bonus is one of the best performing teff grasses, and can produce high quality forage in a short growing season.

Planting information: plant at a rate of 8-12 lbs./acre (or 4-5 lbs./acre into existing alfalfa), 1/8-1/4 inch deep. Seed-to-soil contact is very important, and rolling or packing the soil after seeding can ensure a firm enough seed bed.

Bonus teff requires a frost-free growing season, and grows best in soil with adequate phosphorus, potassium, and sulfur. 50 pounds of nitrogen per acre at planting is recommended for good forage production.

Harvest: in the pre-boot to early boot stage, approximately 50 days after planting, at a cutting height of 3-4 inches. Harvest regrowth 25-45 days.

    Teff grass seed

    I ordered Teff grass seed and used a broadcast spreader to seed my field. The seed is coming up but the broadcast spreader turned 25 percent of the seed to dust because it it so small you have to have the gate almost shut off to cover the field. This is my fault and the fact that the seed is coming up at all tells me the seed is in great condition. I recommend the seed but if you use a broadcast spreader apply it at a higher rate than 10 pounds an acre. Next time I will double the amount of seed to overcome my seeders shortcomings. Or I’ll get a better seeder
