Native cool season, long-lived sod-former from USSR. Grown over most of northwestern and western 1/3 of US. Introduced for range forage and conservation uses.
Very similar to intermediate wheatgrass, but distinguished by dense pubescence on spikes and spikelets.
Very similar to intermediate wheatgrass, but lightly more tolerant of drought, heat and salt. Does best on fine-textured, medium to high fertile soil in cool, sub-humid climate. Also used on sandy and semiarid zones on moist sites.
Does not withstand overgrazing. Can tolerate early flooding for 3 to 5 weeks and water table up to 3' depth.
widely for hay and pasture, also for conservation on disturbed lands,
roadways, ditch lands, etc.
Palatable to cattle in spring and somewhat palatable in winter. Good palatability when green, but only fair in winter. Not quite as palatable as intermediate wheatgrass. Fair volume of summer regrowth and good fall regrowth with ample moisture.
1/2 to 3/4" deep and even up to 1" in coarser soils. Can
be sodded in critical areas. Excellent seedling vigor.
Practice weed control especially in seedling stages. Do not graze until headed and firmly rooted.
