Abstract

Desert wheatgrass, (Agropyron desertorum (Fisch.) Schulte) an introduced perennial grass, is widely used to improve the forage resources in semi-arid regions of the western United States and Canada. The use of this species is based on trials that have shown that it provides early forage, is drought tolerant, often produces greater yields and animal gains, and is able to withstand heavier use than many native species. The nutritional attributes of this species are compared to those of certain other grass species in this paper.
