SPR Brand Teff Grass

$2.50 - $3.08 lb

Teff Grass is a warm-season annual grass that is commonly used for hay production or grazing. Teff has gained popularity due to its excellent forage quality and fast growth which allows for multiple cuttings during the growing season. Teff Grass is very fine stemmed and fine-bladed. This makes it extremely palatable to all classes of livestock, and crude protein levels of Teff hay are much higher than other grass hay options. Teff Grass is widely adapted to a range of soil types but does not do well in waterlogged soils or highly saline areas.

Drilled Seeding Rate: 8-10 lbs/acre
