Sable and I just scouted the nastiest looking new stand of orchard grass I ever saw. It was planted last year and is as yellow as can be, ankle to knee high, looks like it might have been injected with a poison like stinkbugs or something.
Does Timothy mite infect orchardgrass? The old stand is beautiful.
We pulled a soil and tissue sample but it has me stumped. Looks denitrified and almost stunted to me, color is poor, 4 out of 10.
