Renegaide has been specially formulated for new planting or inter-seeding into range and dryland pastures in low-mid rainfall areas and also works in areas that have limited irrigation such as spring runoff irrigation.
This mixture consists of newly developed varieties of Ammo™ Orchardgrass, Arsenal™ Meadow Brome, Artillery™ Smooth Brome, the highly drought tolerant variety of Tall Fescue, Armory™, and Hamann™ Creeping Wheatgrass which were all developed in collaboration with USDA-ARS.
The seed in Renegaide is enhanced with Barenbrug's exclusive Yellow Jacket brand seed coating which absorbs nearly 600 times its weight in water, which improves seed-to-soil contact and makes it ideal for rangeland seeding applications. The Yellow Jacket coating improves establishment in marginalconditions by keeping a layer of moisture around the developing seedling under less-than optimal soil moisture conditions. Renegaide is a part of Barenbrug's Range Shield™ forage concept.
How and When to Plant
Renegaide can be planted utilizing the following methods:
- No-tilled into an existing pasture after vegetation is removed
- Fall dormant seeding or early spring planting
- Late summer/early fall planting is an option where fall moisture is available
- Renegaide can also be planted into a firmly prepared seed bed or broadcasted
Allow Renegaide to establish to at least 10-12 inches tall. Once it has reached this height, introduce a light, initial grazing, leaving 4-5 inches of stubble. Leaving this stubble will encourage tillering. Once Renegaide has recovered, grazing can continue. This mixture is ideal for all types of grazing and is well suited for stockpiling as well.
