Small grains breeding has been an integral part of the Noble Research Institute work since the early 1950s.
Noble Research Institute researchers have developed and released a new tall fescue variety called Chisholm to provide a new forage option for agricultural producers in western Oklahoma and Texas.
Chisholm summer-dormant tall fescue is an endophyte-free variety that can provide livestock producers with a persistent, perennial, cool-season grazing option that is adapted to the hot, dry summers typical west of Interstate 35 in Oklahoma and Texas.
Noble Research Institute plant breeders have developed a new crabgrass cultivar that is later-maturing than Red River crabgrass. Impact crabgrass is adapted for the south-central and southeastern U.S. and is available through Barenbrug, USA.
Producers should check all labels and agreements for restrictions before saving seed. Seed can be protected through the Plant Variety Protection Act, patents and contracts.
Forages contain nutrients that affect individual animal production (gain per animal) while the amount of forage produced affects production per acre.
Cool-season perennial grasses can improve seasonal forage, but successful establishment requires control of naturally reseeding ryegrass, rescuegrass and other winter annual weeds.
The certified seed tag is an assurance that the seed inside the bag is the variety stated and it has met the required standards for germination and purity by the inspecting agency.
