Default Warm season grass seed for sale

A friend of mine and rats contacted me this weekend and he ran across someone who has a bunch of wsg seed they need to move. They have enough to do 80 acres. They paid $7200 for it and said they would take half price or entertain offers. This would be last years seed,,so we are checking to see how much germination one would expect to lose by carrying it over. For program acres,,I would assume it would have to be re-germ tested to be aceptable. If there would happen to be several guys wanting or needing wsg seed,,they could possibly form a coop to purchase this stuff and save a good chunk of change.

Russel is checking on the exact mixture specs ect. If there is interest, I will have details before long.

I will need some but not near that much as I'm converting about 7 or so acres. Depending on the mix, I might be interested. I'll be away from the computer untill Wednesday sometime.

Heck of a deal. Due to bad weather last spring, we are just now planting the WSG we bought - $12K. Nobody has said anything about re-testing the germ, but I assume the FSA will come out to verify we have an adequate stand of grass before forking over the dough.

I'm sure knowing the composition will be a must for those in a program.

I might would be interested in sharing some of this with others. I would be good for $500-$1000 worth. Heck, if they would take $2500 for all of it, I might take it all.

Thats what I thought... I mean really, stand establishment is what they should be concerned with rather than germ.
Thataway, a guy could do a quick germ test to determine seeding rates and get moving on it.

Ours was checked for the cp33 plantings and grass being drilled,,but the checks were written for cost share and signup bonus's etc before the first blade of grass emerged. I can't say for sure on way or another,,but other than satelitte photos, I don't think they have been back to inspect them.

Henry... did they check the actual germination or did they check for a certified lable?
