Perennial brome grasses are extremely palatable perennial grasses which can produce high-quality herbage throughout the year and a particularly good choice for producing winter forage. Common varieties are Atom, Grasslands Gala and Bareno.
Brome grass is a sod-forming perennial, spreading aggressively underground by rootstocks or rhizomes. It forms a dense sod which is an excellent soil binder and withstands considerable abuse from trampling by livestock.
The profusely branched root system not only holds soil effectively while the grass is growing, but it also adds much organic matter and fiber to the soil, which makes it more resistant to erosion.
