Ottawa: Dept of Agriculture, (OCoLC) Western Wheatgrass Seed - Western Wheatgrass is a native, cool season perennial sod forming grass. It reproduces from underground rhizomes and seed. Growth starts in early fall, remains green in winter and has most growth in the spring reaching a height of one to four feet.

    Nordan Crested (6 to 7 lbs per acre) Crested wheatgrass is an early, long-lived, coolseason, drought tolerant, perennial bunchgrass with excellent seedling vigor and ease of establishment. It is used primarily for hay and early spring pasture in mixtures with alfalfa.

SEEDING CRESTED WHEAT GRASS FOR HAY AND PASTURE Introduction Crested wheat grass, due to its remarkable drought resistance, hardiness and longevity, has proved to be of great value for returning fibre to the soil, when used as a hay and pasture crop, and for regrassing range lands in the drier prairie areas of Western Canada.

Crested wheatgrass should be seeded with a drill at a depth of 1/2 inch or less on medium to fine textured soils and 1 inch or less on coarse textured soils. Single species seeding rates recommended for crested wheatgrass and its close relatives are pounds Pure Live. seed originating in Russia by the Agriculture Canada Research Station in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and was released in It was selected for high seed yield and forage quality.

Its intended uses are as a grass component in grass-alfalfa hay mixtures and for short-term pasture that remains productive for. Kirk is a perennial bunch grass that is long lived and has an extensive fibrous root system that gives it excellent winter hardiness.

Boasting a nice drought resistance, Kirk experiences rapid early-spring growth that is nicely palatable. Crested Wheatgrass, Nordan This grass is intended for use in pasture and range planting. establishing a pasture or hay field. Grass mixtures are generally preferred over single species and the number of species to use in a mix will vary.

Generally, plant no more than three grass species per mix with the addition of a legume if a legume is desired in a particular pasture or hay field. Mixtures generally result in a better overall stand.

planting a permanent grass seeding. Plant a grain crop. It may be advantageous to plant annual grain crops for one or more years to stabilize the site prior to planting peren-nial grasses.

If done properly, planting grains can reduce soil erosion and aid in weed removal by. Crested wheatgrass can be used for hay production and will make nutritious feed, but is more suited to pasture use. Light, infrequent applications of nitrogen (25 pounds/acre) and irrigation will increase total biomass production and lengthen the green period.

Environmental Concerns Crested wheatgrasses are long-lived, spread primarily. Plant the seeds ¼ - ½ inch deep. Rows can be ”apart. If a cover crop was used, be sure to plant your grass with a no-till drill so the cover crop residue can remain on top of the ground.

After seeding, water the area if possible. If a grass drill is not available, you can broadcast the seed, but be sure to double the drill seeding rate. Selecting the appropriate forage for hay, pasture, and/or conservation use is an important decision facing producers.

There is a wide range of grasses and legumes available, and each species has its own particular plant and seed characteristics, making it more or less suitable for a producer's purpose. SPD M Wheat Annual H G B G C. Table 1 shows the seeding rates.

Researchers only seeded 10 pounds of alfalfa seed in the mixtures with the intent to have a alfalfa-grass stand. For the most part, this was achieved. Seeding rates reflect seed size and the number of seeds per pound.

Good soil-to-seed contact is the critical factor for successful establishment. Crested Wheatgrass Uses. Crested Wheatgrass produces fair forage. As the grass matures is becomes harsh and protein content drops rapidly. It does, however, yield well and is highly palatable in the spring.

It is used extensively for reclamation, stabilization and erosion control. It is a primary component of our Dryland Pasture Mix. Because of. Light, frequent irrigation is beneficial for stand establishment. For farm, pasture and hay the recommended seeding rate is 15 lbs per acre drilled, 20 pounds per acre broadcast.

For mine lands, roadsides, and other harsh critical areas, the seeding rate should be increased to 25 pounds PLS per acre or 50 PLS seeds per square foot.

Crested Wheatgrass Agropyron cristatum • Culm cm, spike cm • Drought tolerant, widely adapted grass prefers well-drained soils • Introduced, invasive in natural areas • Pasture, hay, and soil stabilization Medium to blue-green, distinctly veined blades cm wide and cm long; upper surface rough or often soft-hairy, lower.

Crested Wheatgrass is a drought and winter hardy bunchgrass that grows to 3 ft. and has an extensive root system. The fairway varieties are selected for their sod-forming ability, and perform well for erosion control. Hycrest is a hybrid cross between Standard Crested Wheatgrass and Desert Wheatgrass bred for higher yields.

Hycrest is well adapted to sagebrush and juniper sites in elevations.
