South Texas Sideoats Grama

South Texas Sideoats Grama


Sideoats grama is the official State Grass of Texas. The South Texas Germplasm is a blend of 6 collections from Atascosa, Frio, Medina, Uvalde, and Val Verde counties. Its wide distribution and value as livestock forage make it an important pasture grass statewide, and the South Texas release shows superior vigor and production compared to other available releases grown in South Texas.

Good forage for livestock and cover for ground nesting birds. Also used for right-of-way planting and oil/gas reclamation.
