RC Big Rock Switchgrass Seed (Panicum virgatum)

RC Big Rock is a new late season variety of upland switchgrass developed from Cave-in-rock. Its distinct traits are a very tall height and high yield potential.

It is a late-season switchgrass with approximately 9 days later maturity than Cave-in-rock. RC Big Rock is a large, seeded variety selected for reduced seed dormancy, increased seed weight and increased seedling vigor. It is an excellent food source for pheasants and quail. It has noteworthy winter hardiness for a late season variety. It grows well on diverse soil types and has a wide regional adaptation to the mid-west and northeast regions. It is well suited for forage, biomass, soil conservation and wildlife habitat applications. ·                     Scientific name: Panicum virgatum ·                     Warm-season perennial grass that is native to North America. ·                     Grows best in areas that receive at least 30 inches of rainfall per year ·                     Grows to 6-8 feet in height. ·                     Can be distinguished from other native grasses by the dense patch of hairs at the point where the leaf blade attaches to the sheath. ·                     Foliage turns a beautiful yellow in the fall. ·                     Could be planted on a highly erodible sites and field borders. ·                     Longevity: Perennial. ·                     Approximately 258,800 seeds/lb ·                     Planting Range: May 1-June 1 or fall seeding
