by Jack Staub, Kevin Jensen, Thomas Jones, Douglas Johnson, Michael Peel, Joseph Robins, Shaun Bushman, Steve Larson, Ivan Mott, Richard Wang, and Blair Waldron
The Forage Range and Research Laboratory (FRRL) has developed critically important plant materials presently used on western U.S. rangelands and pastures. In this volume, plant materials are categorized into three groups: rangeland, irrigated pasture, and turfgrass. Each group contains a plant overview that gives general information concerning germplasm origin, use, and optimal growing conditions; a list of beneficial plant material characteristics; and germplasm availability from local seed companies and seed ordering instructions from commercial seed growers. The historical objective of plant germplasm development at the FRRL is to produce varieties with documented adaptability and unique characteristics. A variety’s distinctiveness is documented by evaluating its performance across multiple locations and years. Color, 44 pages.
