Product Description

Description

Balin Kentucky Bluegrass may well be the world’s most widely used Kentucky bluegrass-and for good reason. It has shown superior winter-hardiness compared to many other bluegrass varieties, and its relatively tall growth habit makes it a much better forage producer than the common bluegrass that most producers are used to. If there is moisture, it will stay green into the summer-almost as long as tall fescue.

Management

Typically, 70% of bluegrass production is before June, hence its nickname “June Grass.” Balin extends the growing period as long as there is moisture. This high-producing bluegrass can thrive in a more relaxed management system due to its superior summer production. Early heave grazing prevents overmature, low-quality forage. and although Balin’s rhizomatous root structure allows it to thrive on intensive grazing, any companion grasses will be stressed to their demise. Keeping a stubble height of over 2-3 inches increases Balin’s tillering.

Establishment

Most bluegrasses take 21 to 28 days to establish. Balin, by contrast establishes at 17 days. Seeding depth is 0.125 to 0.25 inch.
