Reed Canarygrass: A tall, wide leafed plant that will tolerate low pH and flooding on well-drained fertile soil. Reed Canarygrass will produce high yields and if grazed enough to prevent heading, it make a good quality high yielding forage. Should be considered for fields suffering from very poor drainage. It will withstand surface water for 6-8 weeks. It should be seeded with a light cover crop of oats which should be removed early to prevent competition.
