INTERMEDIATE WHEAT GRASS SEED

Intermediate Wheatgrass
An important cool-season sod-forming late-maturing perennial grass imported successfully in 1932 from Russia. Used for pasture and hay in the northern Great Plains, west to Washington, south to Colorado and Kansas. Adapted to areas of 15 or more inches of annual rainfall; has grown in elevations up to 10,000 feet. Good persistence, drought tolerance and winter hardiness. Produces good hay yields, grows well with alfalfa, sutiable for erosion control. On well-drained, fertile soils with ample moisture will grow to 6 feet. Hay yields are high, makes excellent pasture from early spring to late summer. Easily established, grows rapidly. Not as winter hardy as crested wheatgrass. Difficult to maintain stands more than 6 years.
Seeding rate 12 to 15 lbs/acre.
Germination: about 14 days.
Mature height: 30 to 60 inches
