Technical Abstract: This factsheet contains summary information about the most common plant species encountered in northeastern pastures. Some information, such as plant size and flowering time, comes from standard reference works. Information on frequency and abundance in northeastern pastures is derived from an eight-year study of pasture plant community composition conducted on 44 farms from Maryland to Maine. The species included in this factsheet are: orchardgrass, tall fescue, Kentucky bluegrass, perennial ryegrass, quackgrass, timothy, red clover, white clover, English plantain, common plantain, dandelion and yellow wood sorrel.
