    Eastern Gama Grass:

    Took some plugs from local seed collected last year to fill in where some ditches are starting to form. Stagger planted these to slow the flow of water coming off the hill as some ditches are cutting pretty bad from this years rains. I’ll be back up in a couple weeks to collect more remnant seeds from the county to save genotypes. The few scattered plants are starting to disappear in the few places I’ve found them still. Cattle kill it out since they’re not rotational grazed on a lot of farms back there.

    Fast forward 15 days later:

    7-20

    90 degree temps since planting the plugs and zero rain=new growth!

    Anyone looking to add Eastern Gama to their farm, it’s now time when a lot of seeds are ready. They will pull of easily when ripe. I’ve noticed a lot of plants I used to pick from are disappearing. Today’s land practices are not conducive for it to spread, or even maintain the stands. Collecting from local plants is a great way to keep those genotypes around.
