(No reviews yet) Write a Review

 RC Chippewa is a new late season Midwest variety of upland switchgrass developed from Cave-in-Rock. It is a biomass type of switchgrass with fewer but thicker stems. Genetically improved for ease of establishment, erect growth and increased height.  RC Big Rock is a large seeded variety selected for reduced seed dormancy and increased seedling vigor, and like Cave-in-Rock, grows well on diverse soil types in the Midwest and Northeast. Late-season maturity is approximately 1-2 days earlier than Cave-in-Rock.
