Product Description

Katambora Rhodes Grass 

Katambora Rhodes grass (diploid*) has superior frost tolerance, salt tolerance and drought tolerance than the Callide. Katambora can be sown in cooler areas of Australia, providing the locations align with the temperature and rainfall recommendations. 

Climate: The optimum growing temperature for Rhodes Grasses is in the range of 20-37ºC.

Sowing: Sow at 10kg/ha. We recommend sowing Rhodes Grass between September and  March, depending on the climate, and when there is more probability of receiving consecutive rain days.

Rainfall: 600mm – 1200mm annually.

Grazing: Rhodes grass should not be grazed in the first year until the plants and runners are well anchored. This may not occur until rains in autumn. Please ensure you rest the plants to see how well they are anchored before grazing. Rhodes grass is very tolerant to cutting or grazing. The stand should be maintained in a leafy condition by fairly regular cutting/slashing or grazing, as the feeding value declines rapidly with onset of flowering.
