Texas Panicum is an annual native plant found in all soils in South Texas. This grass is reported to produce good forage for livestock, and produces seed commonly consumed by doves and quail. Texas Panicum is a common weed in agricultural fields. Texas Panicum is an excellent species for reclamation or restoration of highly disturbed planting sites, and has value as a warm-season native cover crop. Seed of this species is often commercially available at reasonable prices, as it is commonly a by-product or clean out of grain sorghum and native grass seed harvests. Texas Panicum is an excellent native plant for game bird food plots in South Texas.
