Warm season grasses are most productive during summer months and have the potential to fill a large forage production gap in the southeastern US, known as the "summer slump." Native warm season grasses are well adapted to theis region's climate and soils, maintaining high productivity even in the summer months and with minimal inputs. Their deep rooting potential also has value for carbon sequestration.
