Red River Crabgrass Seed


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.

    Red River Crabgrass

    I never thought I would intentionally want to plant crabgrass. Last summer I watched our flock of sheep eat any crabgrass that was in our fields, leaving the fescue. Crabgrass- better nutrients,stands up to heat and grazing.Fewer seeds per acre needed. Planted Red River last week with Korean lespedeza. Waiting on the rain. It was in stock and shipped quickly.

    Good product/poor shipping experience

    My seed was well packed, and so far seems good. On the other hand, my package was supposed to have been coming via UPS, as it stated on my invoice. The pkg was sent via FedEx, which is a major problem for me since after living at the same address for 10 years, they can't seem to locate my address. Plus, the pkg didn't ship for about a week after they issued a tracking number. If I had known that you would be using FedEx, I would have purchased my seed elsewhere.
