Seeding, herbicide, and fungicide impact on perennial grass establishment in cheatgrass infested habitats.

Abstract

This paper discusses research examining the impact of seeding, herbicide and fungicide on Bromus tectorum, a perennial grass. Topics discussed include factors contributing to Bromus tectorum invasion into rangelands, reasons for failure of revegetation of native species, integration of herbecide imazapic with generalist grass pathogen Pyrenophora semeniperda, and common causes of revegetation failure addressed by integrating multiple management strategies.
