Metadata[+] Show full item record
Reed canarygrass is a tall-growing, cool season perennial with a rhizomatous root system (it roots by sending out runners). Ryegrass is a palatable bunch grass that may be used as a winter annual and will make a quick top growth and heavy root development. It usually is effective when seeded in late summer or early fall as a winter cover crop and nurse crop for longer-living legumes and grasses. Garrison Creeping Foxtail is a rhizomatous cool season grass that starts growth early in spring and grows late in fall if moisture is available.
