Teff

Teff

Teff is a very small seeded summer annual that has large interest amongst the equine community. Known for it's low non-structural carbohydrate content, this is a fine leaf and stem grass that is native to Africa. It must be seeded into a prepared seed bed, broadcasted, and then firmed into the seed bed for ideal establishment. The first harvest can be taken for dry hay only- if grazed this early on, the livestock will pull the plants out by the roots. Once established, teff requires very little. It is drought tolerant and needs only 30 units per acre of nitrogen to produce a good crop. Should be harvested prior to boot stated for ideal quality and regrowth potential.
