With nutritive values comparitive to Timothy, Teff can yield 4-8 tons/Acre depending on the length of growing season.

Planting depth should be no deeper than 1/8-1/4 in. into a firm seedbed. 50-70 total Lbs. of Nitrogen should be applied per year split applied after each cutting for good production by later cuttings. Its primary uses include high quality hay for horses and livestock, green manure, and cover crop. Varieties available: SPR BRAND, COATED SEED
