Leafy forage. Premium quality. High yields.
Baqueano is an exciting new entry into the US market. Already recognized in other regions, Baqueano is well known for its very leafy, lush growth, excellent forage quality, and high yields. Its rapid establishment and extensive canopy cover allows early usages as well as aiding in weed suppression.
Baqueano produces an abundant amount of long and wide leaves. As a tetraploid, these leaves are very tender and digestible, making Baqueano excellent feed for any grazing livestock.
While Baqueano can be grazed or harvested for hay early in the season, its most significant growth begins mid-season and continues through until flowering. Producers in the northern portions of the South will find this very beneficial, as well as others desiring abundant forage during the second half of the growing season. For producers desiring to maximize early regrowth of warm-season perennial forage, such as bermudagrass, Baqueano may need to be chemically terminated before obtaining its complete yields.

Baqueano is a versatile forage with many applications:
Baqueano is a great option for both rotational grazed and continuous grazed pastures and is safe for all livestock. If possible, always choose rotational grazing practices.
Hay and Silage
Baqueano has excellent regrowth, providing multiple cuts all season long. Additionally, silage producers will find Baqueano a valuable single-cut forage with abundant yields and tetraploid-quality feed value.
Baqueano’s quick fall growth will help draw in the big racks. Abundant spring production can help grow the herd for next year.
Enhance Your Seed
We provide an array of seed enhancements, including bio stimulants, macro and micronutrients, water absorbents, fungicides, and colorants. These are available for all seed types and uses.
Prior to Planting
For optimal performance, prior to planting, obtain a soil test. Amend soil according to recommendations and fertilize after planting according to recommendations and use.
How to Plant
Baqueano can be drilled or broadcast into either a prepared seedbed or an existing sod bed. For prepared seedbed, lightly disc and pack well. For existing sod bed, reduce existing sod height as much as possible.
Baqueano can be planted throughout the year. However, maximum utilization will be obtained by planting in the fall as soon as adequate moisture is available. If planted at other times of the year, performance will be limited.
Application of fertilizer (per soil test results) throughout the growing season and/or use of legumes will provide maximum forage tonnage and root growth.
