Great Basin Seed began selling Cache Meadow Brome as soon as it was released to the public. It has become a “staple” item in our Irrigated Pasture Mix. It has a proven track record and is asked for by name. We recommend you consider it as a component of your planting program.

Cache was derived from selections of Regar, Fleet and Paddock and was selected for improved seedling establishment and increased forage yields on irrigated and semi-irrigated pastures in the Intermountain and Northern Great Plains regions of the western United States. We have used as a stand-alone item but it is most frequently used as a component in a pasture mix. 

Cache Meadow Brome has proven to be very drought tolerant for a meadow brome and it demonstrates excellent regrowth. It tolerates spring frost, and as a result it greens up early. It’s rapid regrowth makes it an ideal choice for intensive grazing.

Cache Meadow Brome was developed by the USDA-ARS, Forage and Range Research Laboratory at Utah State University, Logan, UT and was released in 2004 with Plant Variety Protection (PVP).
