Winter Hardy—Very persistent.
Yields—Palaton has an excellent yield record producing over 5 tons of quality, palatable, dry matter over a 3 year average on three cuttings.
Tough—A grass that can take all kinds of weather conditions and still be accepted by livestock.
Withstands excessive wetness.
Withstands excessive drought conditions.
Multiple Cuttings— Stands up to multiple cuttings under wet or drought conditions, something you
can not do with orchardgrass, timothy, brome, or
ryegrass. When these grasses quit growing Palaton Reed Canarygrass is still growing and producing good palatable forage.

Outstanding pasture grass in combination with legumes.

Time to Plant: February through April or August through September—alone or with companion crop. Late summer planting recommended for low, wet areas to permit proper soil preparation.
