Growing Chufa Grass

Chufa is Easy to Grow, and You Do Not Have to

Have Much Special Equipment

1. Choose a site. Chufa will grow in a variety of soil types but prefers moderate to well-drained sandy or loamy soils. The area you select for planting should be relatively smooth and weed-free with some sunlight available. 2. Choose a time to plant. The crop generally can be planted in the spring or summer months. Specifically, in the Carolinas and Virginia area, the recommended planting dates range between mid-April to late- July. 3. Prepare your plot. Plow the soil well to create a smooth and weed-free bed. 4. Plant your chufa. You can spread chufa seed by hand or use a commercial spreader to place about 40 pounds per acre (about 4 seed per square foot.) 5. Cover. Disc, drag, or plant chufa seed deep enough to cover the seed to a depth of about 1 to 1 1/2 inches. From Planting to Maturation
