Technical Abstract: Fish Creek bottlebrush squirreltail (Elymus elymoides [Raf.] Swezey ssp. elymoides) germplasm (Reg. no. , PI 633741) was released as a selected class of Certified seed (natural track). This class of pre-cultivar germplasm is eligible for seed certification under guidelines developed by the Association of Seed Certifying Agencies (2001). Natural track designation is merited because no intentional selection was practiced on this material. The intended area of use is the Upper Snake River Plain of Idaho and northern Great Basin of Oregon, Idaho, and Nevada. Participating in the release are the USDA-ARS, the Utah Agricultural Experiment Station, the USDI-Bureau of Land Management, and the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service.
