Pasture Grass Production Expected To Drop

Chicot Memorial


MISSISSIPPI (Ben Caxton) — A warm winter and rainy spring have sprouted pasture grasses early, but last year’s drought may affect hay acreage. Mississippi State University’s Extension Service says Bermuda grass and bahiagrass have sprouted at least two weeks before normal across the state, which allows early grazing and possibly early production but the drought hurt the grasses’ root systems which could give weeds a better chance than usual. Production of Bermuda grass is expected to drop by 10 percent, and hay acreage will drop about 8 percent.
