Persist Orchardgrass

Planting Persist

Seeding Rate

Seed Persist at 18-20 lbs per ace for straight seedings.  If using with other grasses, rate should be reduced to 8-10 lbs.  For best weed control, plant clovers after adequate establishment and weed management has been performed.  For more precise recommendations, consult your local extension agent.

Establishment and Vigor

Persist is easily established and has excellent seedling vigor. 


Persist orchardgrass has a very wide adaptation and has successfully been grown as far north as Canada and as far south as northern Georgia, Memphis, TN, and Oklahoma City, OK, as well as the Western and Eastern United States.

Persist Loves White Clover

Data shows that use of white clover with Persist can increase forage tonnage significantly. Check out the study. White clover also increases the protein and feed value for grazing and hay applications. Finally, white clover provides free nitrogen to surrounding plants.
