Smooth bromegrass (Bromus inermis) is a cool-season grass introduced into the United States from Hungary in 1884. Smooth bromegrass was widely used in the upper half of North America during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with distinguishable northern and southern varieties. Interest in the species flagged for a time but re-emerged when smooth bromegrass proved to be more resistant to the Depression-era droughts than many other introduced grasses. Testing stations from Missouri to Alaska examined its merits.
