      Timothy hay (phleum pretense) is a perennial grass hay used as feed for many animals from small pets to Triple Crown-winning to much of Europe, an American colonial farmer is credited with being the first to cultivate the grass in North America in   The best grass seed for Southern California is a warm-season grass. For coastal locations where winter temperatures rarely dip below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, an ideal grass seed is Seashore Paspalum, which tolerates both salt and drought. For inland parts of Southern California with hotter summers, Bermuda grass is a good choice.

Infestations of rattail fescue can be problematic in alfalfa fields because of the plant’s resistance to many grass selective herbicides. Livestock forage value: There is some value as a grazing plant when vegetative, but consumption is low as they mature due to sharp awns on the spikelet.

California Seed Advisory Board. The seed industry helps to oversee the enforcement program through the Seed Advisory Board. Created inthe Board is advisory to the Secretary of Food and Agriculture, and makes recommendations on all matters pertaining to California Seed Law and seed inspection regulations, the enforcement program, and the program's budget (including the State Seed.

California is a great big state with a host of different growing environments and every grass seed known to man can be successfully established and grown in one or more regions. Having said that, below are some of the most common. Cool-Season Grasses. The seeds, or the products grown from them, will be used as food for human consumption or as feed for food animals.

Examples include vegetable seeds and seeds used to grow grain or pasture grass for cattle. The buyer will resell the seeds or the products grown from them, in the regular course of the buyer's business.

Fertilizer sales. Grass seed production is a long term cropping system and may require more than two years before a seed crop is harvested and profits are realized by the producer. Unlike many annual crops, the value of the seed is dependent upon the market value of the variety produced and usually requires the grower to have a production contract with a seed.

S&S Seeds' extensive wildland collections of native plant seed and our production fields allow us to offer more than species including native grasses, wildflowers and shrubs.

Our large inventory of collection site identified plant seeds can be utilized by planners to pick a species from a source that fits the specific needs of their project.

Fall and spring are the best times to plant grass seed, because seed germinates best when temperatures are between 61°F and 70°F. You also have a choice of St. Augustine grass. This grass is nearly indestructible and looks great nearly year-round.

One problem many have found is almost all weed killers will kill St. Augustine too. Bermuda grass grows best in the summer and turns yellow in the winter. Some homeowners will sprinkle a different grass seed variety over Bermuda grass in the autumn so that the lawn stays green (this process is called "overseeding").

Southern California’s warm to hot climate with its mild winters offers the growing conditions ideal for warm-season grasses. Your options include, among others, Bermudagrass, which does well in the inland valleys, and buffalo grass, a good selection if your yard is in the state’s southern desert.

Seeds and Plant Production When planting for seed increase, seed should be treated with a fungicide (most seed companies can treat seed) to reduce potential head smut problems common in bromes. Irrigated seed production plantings should be in at least inch rows and preferably inch rows.

Triangle Farms is a 6th generation family farm and is one of the most diverse farms on the West Coast of the United States. We produce turf, forage and native grass seeds as well as legume, native, wildflower, forbs, garden flower, herb, cover crops and pollinator seeds for wholesale and government agencies throughout the world.

Triangle Farms specializes in the seed production and processing. The seeds that grow in southern California should be adapted to the dry conditions that we are facing. Unless seed production takes place in southern California, growers face the possibility of huge crop failures due to the lack of area-specific varieties of food crops.

Seed production of one or more grass species are the major enterprises, with growers using machine technology especially adapted to small seeds. Mild and moist winters with dry summers favoring seed development and harvest make the Valley an ideal place to produce high quality seed. The price of grass seeds depends on the size of the bag, the type of seed, any particular added materials such as fertilizer, and the brand.

But as a general rule, you should expect to pay $10 to $25 for a good-quality, three-pound bag of grass seeds. Seed certified by the California Crop Improvement Association is slightly more expensive than common seed, but it is a good investment to ensure potential for higher yield, increased germination, and reduced risk of introducing a new weed species.

Napier fodder produces little viable seed and the hybrid is sterile (does not produce seed), so establishment is done g: California.County, Kentucky. From this planting, seed was collected by another farmer and seeded near Goshen, Kentucky, where seed was commercially grown. Oldham County was a large producer of seed for several years.
