Native Grass Establishment Demonstration Plots

Authors: ,


Current CRP programs have emphasized the use of warm-season native grasses. In the early 1990s a variety trial of different species and varieties of native grasses was established by the NRCS staff at the Southeast Research and Demonstration Farm. These plots have been very useful for landowners to see the growth characteristics of the different varieties. However, landowners have had many questions about what a seeding should look like during the establishment years. The project goal was to compare different seeding times and weed control methods in the establishment of native grasses.
