2023 Crabgrass Seed Pool
The Rockingham County Extension Office is hosting a crabgrass seed pool. The variety we are offering this year is Quick-n-Big Spreader, developed by Dalrymple Farms of Thomas, Oklahoma. This is an improved forage crabgrass with an upright growth form plus the capacity to spread, ideal for sacrifice pastures, feeding areas, or as a summer forage component in thinning pastures. A full seeding rate is 5-6 lbs./acre. A rate as low as 3 lbs./acre may be appropriate for filling-in bare or thin areas of a pasture, but rates lower than this are discouraged.
The price is $6.50/lb., and you can order as much or as little as you want, although it must be in 5 pound increments. The plan is to have the seed delivered to Harrisonburg around mid-March to enable timely distribution. You must contact Matt Booher to discuss seed delivery or pick up options before purchasing seed!
