Description

Switch grass is a tall grass found in North America and Europe

Switch grass has small stems with long leaves that grow from the ground and turn yellow-brown when they’re ready to turn over. They are usually about 10–25 centimeters high, but their height can reach up to 50 centimeters at times.

 Switch grass sometimes grows in pastures where cows graze, and horses roam fields. It usually grows in moist areas near streams or rivers, but it can also grow in dry terrains like prairies or meadows.

 

 Switch grass spreads by sending up new stems from the broken root system

How switch grass spreads

 That means it can spread quickly, sending out many branches at once. It also has a competitor-less growth pattern and can grow in dense patches.

 Switchgrass also grows very tall.

 Though switch grass has a lot of economic benefits, switchgrass stops erosion and controls soil erosion. It can provide a habitat for birds and animals and cover the sun for livestock to rest during the day. Switch grass is also very nutritious for grazing cows and horses because it contains protein, minerals, iron, calcium, and cellulose, providing protein, fiber, and Omega-3 fatty acids. It also has high antioxidants that help fight off free radicals and cancer cells. In addition to this, switch grass improves soil quality by helping prevent soil erosion and increasing nutrient levels in the soil.

When to plant switch grass

  It’s best to plant switch grass when soil temperatures are warm in the spring. If you plant it in the summer, switch grass will overgrow and be at its most full size when cold weather arrives. The best time to plant is either right before or right after a hard frost so the grass can rapidly establish itself.

 You can plant switch grass in the fall, but this is not recommended because it will take a while to establish itself and grow before winter sets in fully. It also won’t have time to recover from being planted during the summer months. Planting in the spring also helps prevent weed seeds from germinating and establishing themselves once winter hits.
