Crested Wheat Grass
Still Considered Best
Crested wheatgress is still the
best grass for seeding in dry
land range areas with less than
12 inches of annual rainfall. That
conclusion was re-affirmed by a
survey made on 23 desert farms
in the Fort Rock area of Lake
county. Rainfall in that area av
; erages about 10 inches Flourish
ing stands of crested wheatgrass
I were viewed, many of which
have been in existence for almost
20 years. Some of the questions
asked by the local farmers In
that area were: Why are some
crested wheatgrass fields free of
I sage and rabbit brush; others
! badly encroached upon? Stock
relish some fields; why do they
seem to avoid others? How much
feed does crested wheatgrass fur
nish in comparison witih adja
cent unseeded lands that were
once plowed? What kind of
j stand is best, a thick stand with
, small clumps, or a thin stand
with large clumps?
A poor stand of crested wheat
grass usually follows drilling on
lands that have not been cleared.
This stand allows the grass to
form large clumps which are un
palatable. Crested wheatgrass
stands have been invaded by
rabbit brush or sagebrush could
be renovated by rather heavy
The best use of grass, mean
while, is made by pasturing hea
vily, then removng stock to al
low regrowth, or, by using the
grass heavily one year, then al
lowing a complete year of re
cuperation. Crested wheatgrass is
furnishing at least five times
as much feed as adjacent native
grass and sagebrush in the area
Another grass which shows
considerable promise in areas
with minimum rainfall is Siber
ian wheatgrass. There is, how
ever, no seed available of this
comparatively new grass.
