Grass Varieties for North Dakota

crested wheat grass

Grass species and varieties differ in growth habit, productivity, forage quality, drought resistance, tolerance to grazing, winter hardiness, seedling vigor, salinity tolerance and many other characteristics. Therefore, selection should be based on the climate, soils, intended use and the planned management. Planting a well-adapted selection also can provide long-term benefits and affect future productivity of the stand. Crested wheatgrass photo by Maureen Flynn-Burhoe (Flickr).
