      Sideoats Grama - El Reno


      Sideoats grama is a native, perennial, warm grass native to North America. Sideoats grama is the official state grass of Texas. It will produce seed 2 to three times per year, depending on moisture, from May until November. Sideoats grama provides high quality, nutritious, and palatable forage for all classes of livestock. Because of its palatability, sideoats grama is easily overgrazed. Rotational grazing, proper grazing use, and appropriate stocking rates are necessary to manage this grass.
