Dacotah Switchgrass



           Dacotah Switchgrass is an early maturing native perennial, warm-season, sodforming grass that grows 3 to 5 feet in height and produces a deep extensive fiberous root system. It matures up to one month earlier than other varieties of switchgrass. Switchgrass is a major component of the tall grass vegetation which once dominated the prairies of the Central and Eastern United States. It can be used alone or in mixtures for livestock forage in rangeland, pastureland, and hayland. In addition, switchgrass is excellent for wildlife habitat, critical-area seeding, roadside beautification, and erosion control. It can be used in mixtures with other warm-season grasses such as big bluestem, indiangrass, little bluestem, and sideoats grama. This variety of switch grass has increased drought tolerance.
