Trailburst

Trailblazing Forage Yield, Quality and Plant Health

Trailburst is a high yielding orchardgrass developed with quality and plant health in mind. Its wide leaves and tall plant height deliver trailblazing forage quality, with medium maturity that is well adapted for most hay or pasture applications. Trailburst’s dense network of rhizomatous roots provide good erosion control on sites where it is adapted. Trailburst has shown high crude protein content and relative feed value that provides excellent forage quality.
