Olympia (Dactylis glomerata L.) is a cool season perennial bunchgrass with high yields, high quality and it is a very persistent variety developed at the University of GA by Dr. Joe Bouton. Olympia was selected under grazing pressure to increase durability and persistence insuring a long stand life. Best suited for moderately well-drained soils, it works extremely well in mixtures with legumes. It will tolerate some shade and is more heat and drought tolerant than perennial ryegrass, timothy or bluegrass but less than tall fescue. Olympia can be used for pasture, hay, green chop, silage and wildlife plots. 12 - 15 lbs per acre, Aug 15 - Oct 15 and February - April (see tech sheet for specific info on planting), ½” maximum depth.
