Crown Royale orchardgrass is a late maturing orchardgrass with improved disease resistance to leaf, stem, and stripe rust. Crown Royale was selected for its increased forage yields, tillering, and improved resistance to foliar diseases. It has topped the yield trials throughout most of the United Sates producing up to 35% more forage then other grasses tested.

Crown Royale has excellent early seedling vigor making it easy to establish. Furthermore, it performs well on various soil types ranging from clay to gravely loams and on shallow to deep soils.

Crown Royale has shown excellent winter hardiness and moderate drought resistance. Due to its later maturity, Crown Royale is a perfect solution for strengthening a mid-western alfalfa field or pasture.

Crown Royale should be planted at 20 pounds per acre drilled for a solid stand March-April or late August-October at 1/2 inch depth.
