Producers ask many questions before they plant winter annuals. They want to know what varieties to plant, which varieties will give the most for the money, and what to look for in a variety. Those are all important considerations. There are several traits that are important when selecting a variety. For example, it’s important to choose a variety that establishes quickly, is well-adapted to the area, yields plenty, yields consistently throughout the season, is very palatable, transitions easily back to warm-season grasses, resists disease, tolerates cold, and is reasonably priced.
