After conducting field experiments and laboratory analysis of a promising forage crop, Agri-Tech Integrated Services Corporation (ATISCO) is releasing seeds for commercial planting. This is what ATISCO calls Geukdong-PH which is a very palatable, high-yielding grass with protein content of 13.90% as per the analysis of dried samples by the Bureau of Animal Industry.

Seeds are available at the Sarian Farm at P100 per pack of 150 grams. Can also be delivered by JRS Express nationwide.

Geukdong-PH is a perennial plant that can be ratooned, and each ratoon can be harvested every 45 to 60 days. According to Dante Delima, operations manager of ATISCO, Geukdong-PH is more tender than napier so that it is better liked by farm animals. Practically everything is consumed by the animals.This grass can also be made into silage, an animal feed that is increasingly becoming popular among goat raisers and dairy farmers.

Geukdong can be propagated by seed. Packs weighing 150 grams may be bought at the Sarian Farm in Teresa, Rizal at P100 per pack. The seeds can also be ordered for delivery by JRS Express. You can contact Sarian Farm at 0995-584-9155 (Globe) or 0947-409-4700 (Smart).

One pack contains 1,900 to 2,000 seeds. Planting distance is 50cm x 50 cm at 2 to 3 seeds per hill. Prepare the land like the way you prepare for corn.
