(PLS) Slender Wheat Grass (Agropyron trachycaulum) is an excellent cool season, first-year seedling vigor is the outstanding attribute of this grass. The seed has a high germination rate and excellent emergence characteristics. It can provide a good grass cover on areas that have been disturbed and may be used for seeding low areas that tend to be alkaline.

"Excellent first-year seedling vigor is the outstanding attribute of this grass. The seed has a high germination rate and excellent emergence characteristics. It can provide a good grass cover on areas that have been disturbed and may be used for seeding low areas that tend to be alkaline.

It is adapted to a wide range of soils, but prefers the sandy loams. It persists better than smooth bromegrass or crested wheatgrass on heavy-textured soils, and has been used in mixtures on irrigated land. Slender wheatgrass is surpassed only by tall wheatgrass in tolerating alkali soils. It is less drought-resistant than crested or western wheatgrass.

"Slender wheatgrass is relatively short-lived. It yields well for the first 3 to 4 years, and then stand density decreases rapidly. Because of this characteristic, it is suggested that it be used in mixtures with other grasses which are more persistent, but are slow to establish. It is not as competitive with weeds as other wheatgrasses, but it is shade tolerant.
