T-587 old world bluestem is a perennial, warm-season bunch grass, introduced from the Near East. T-587 is a high forage producer and is persistent under heavy grazing. It is widely adapted to the diverse climates and soils of south and Central Texas. T-587 does best when planted on tighter soils in areas receiving 14 inches or more of rainfall.
The most limiting factor associated with this grass is that it lacks cold tolerance, which limits it area of adaptation.
