Establishment & Management

Teff is a warm season annual grass that requires a frost free growing season. Soil temperatures should be at least 65 degrees F and warming. The recommended seeding rate for coated Teff is 8-10 lbs per acre. Seeding depth should be 1/8 to 1/4 inch deep into a very firm seed bed and good seed to soil contact is important. When planted at the right depth and temperatures, Teff usually emerges in 4 to 5 days.
