Reprieve Teff
$5.75/pound 6-8 pounds/acre

Reprieve Teff is a warm-season annual grass featuring rapid seed germination and seedling development. It also is well adapted to dry climates making it perfect as a supplemental forage during periods when other forage supplies are diminished.

Teff is fine-stemmed and the plants remain green and leafy to the base. Grain color ranges from pale white to ivory white, very light tan to deep brown to reddish brown purple.

- Useful for the horse hay market - quality comparable to timothy

- Perfect as an emergency hay or pasture planted in midsummer

- Use as a rotation crop following alfalfa or cereal grains

- Seed Teff when temperatures range from 50 to 80 degrees F

- Teff is coated with limestone to increase weight in arial seeding and aid in attracting soil moisture

MANAGEMENT TIPS

- Teff does not tolerate frost so planting should be delayed until the risk has passed.

- Teff emerges quickly in warm soils and is a fast growing crop

- Plant less than1/4 inch deep in a very firm seedbed

- Can be drilled or broadcast

- Seeding rate 6-8 pounds per acre

- Grows in a wide variety of climates and soil types

- Interest in Teff as a health food is growing due to low gluten content and high mineral content

- Teff seed can shatter if harvest is delayed

- Teff is relatively free of plant disease compared to other cereal crops. It is suitable and is used for double and relay cropping
