Book: Native Warm-Season Grasses: Research Trends and Issues, CSSA Special Publication 30, 2000
Published by: Crop Science Society of America and American Society of Agronomy


Including native warm-season grasses in pasture systems makes good ecological sense, and this publication explores the benefits and challenges associated with their use. The uneven seasonal distribution of forage production from introduced cool-season species is a primary factor complicating pasture management, while native plant communities are more efficient at capturing solar radiation.
