Tall Wheat Grass

Contact us
Tall wheat grass is used in salty, wet areas for long-term management of salinity issues. It is often used to help prevent erosion in salt-affected areas and lower the water table. It has a reasonably large seed, but will
grow into a large crowned-plant, so the sowing rate is more modest as a result. It can only offer fair quality feed, although can be useful sown in a mixed sward with other salt-tolerant species such as phalaris, tall fescue, sub-clover and strawberry clover. Best grazed in mid-late autumn after it has been growing and working through the spring and summer. It will be stalky and probably in seed-head, but the main purpose is to manage the salt and local water table issues.
