Improved Selling Techniques for Crested Wheatgrass1
- Douglas R. Dewey2
Daily manual agitation of the selling bag during anthesis more than doubled average self-seed set of 162 crested wheatgrass clones in 1966 and more than tripled selling in 1967 and 1968. Increasing the number of spikes per bag from 5 to 10 only slightly decreased the number of seeds per spike. As spikes per bag were increased from 5 to 20, the number of seeds per bag increased 2.2 times; and the number of seeds per spike declined by 45%. Bag agitation was more essential to selfing in bags with 20 spikes than in bags with either 5 or 10 spikes. Daily agitation of bags with 10 spikes is recommended as an efficient method of selling crested wheatgrassPlease view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
