Weeping Lovegrass

Grass Family (Poaceae : Eragrosteae)
Latin Name: Eragrostis curvula
Season: Warm
Origin: Introduced
Value: Wildlife – fair (cover)
Livestock – good

Remarks:
This drought resistant bunchgrass was introduced as a forage plant on sandy soils. It will green up earlier than other warm season grasses providing early forage. The value of the forage decreases rapidly upon maturity, this grass will become tough an non-palatable at maturity. This is a high management pastureland grass. Due to the rapid growth and abundance of forage production, it is best to stock large numbers of animals during the early growth while it is palatable. If this grass becomes rank it then becomes necessary to shred or burn the old growth to allow livestock access to the new growth. Otherwise, animal performance will be poor on mature, rank stands of weeping Lovegrass. Responds well to fertilization.

Wilman Lovegrass

Grass Family (Poaceae : Eragrostis)
Latin Name: Eragrostis superba

Origin: Introduced
Value: Wildlife – low
Livestock – good

Remarks:
“Wilman” Lovegrass is a warm season perennial bunchgrass, bearing little resemblance to other lovegrasses. “Wilman” is adapted to most soils, especially sandy sites throughout north central to south Texas. Some seed are being used in reclamation areas as far east as Florida. Cattle and deer find “Wilman” palatable and will readily eat both green forage and cured hay. The dense undergrowth provides a fair habitat for quail and other wildlife. It recovers easily after intense grazing. “Wilman” Lovegrass is not as cold tolerant as the native grasses, but is drought resistant. The average height is 2-3 ft. tall.

Kleingrass

Latin Name : Paicum Coloratum 
(synonym: Triticum cylindricum) 
Longevity : Perennial 
Season : Warm 
Origin : Africa 
Value : 
Wildlife – good 
Livestock – Excellent

Remarks :

Kleingrass is a warm season perennial bunchgrass introduced into this country from Africa. It is fine stemmed, leafy and grows to a height of 3 to 4 feet. 

Kleingrass is quite variable in its makeup with some plants displaying abundant pubescence while others are relatively smooth. Plants vary from prostrate to erect in growth form but most are upright. 

Kleingrass spreads by tillers or short rhizomes and will root at the nodes where the stems come in contact with wet soil. "Selection 75" Kleingrass is a variety that has been used extensively in Texas. It was released jointly by the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station and the Soil Conservation Service for its palatability and forage production. 

"Verde" Kleingrass is a newer released variety. The seed are slightly larger than "Selection 75", making "Verde" more than popular for wildlife habitat, especially birds. Kleingrass is easily established from seed. Seedlings are sturdy, have good root development, but grow slow initially. 

Planting recommendations are 2 pure live seed pounds per acre when planted broadcast. Plant 1/4 to 1/2 inch deep using a small seed box, usually in the spring after the soil temperature reaches 60 degrees. 

Kleingrass is extremely attractive to cattle and wildlife as either green forage or cured hay. Because of good palatability, protect from overgrazing until the field is established. Animal performance has been above average for a warm season, perennial grass. Horses and sheep should not graze Kleingrass as health side-effects may result.
