Georgia Forages: Bluegrass

Forage Extension Specialist

Kentucky bluegrass is sometimes found in pastures in the Limestone Valley/Mountains region. However, it furnishes very little grazing during late winter and spring and goes dormant during the summer. Though it produces a very solid sod that holds up to traffic exceptionally well, Kentucky bluegrass is a low yielding species that does not persist well in Georgia. It is not recommended for planting.
