In most instances, Reed Canarygrass
tended to dominate the shallow emergent vegetation.

There were 4 litter treatments: soybean, reed canarygrass
, deciduous-mix, and no litter and 2 earthworm treatments: endogeic earthworm and a no earthworm control.
The objectives of this study were (i) to select reed canarygrass
plants and populations for establishment capacity in the presence of annual weeds, (ii) to evaluate progeny for progress from selection, and (iii) to determine mechanisms for improved establishment potential in selected populations.
This wetland is sown with a plant known as reed canarygrass
(Phalaris arundinacea) that can be used when the objective is treatment of wastes rather than just dewatering.
They surveyed reed canarygrass
(Phalaris arundinacea), which is not known to grow in standing water, along the streambanks to determine normal stream water elevations.
(Phalaris arundinacea L.) has a combination of traits that are desirable for conservation uses.

Aside from switchgrass, on which he's built an entire breeding program, Casler is also eyeing the promise of other low-input grasses, such as smooth bromegrass, orchardgrass, and reed canarygrass
. He thinks they've got the potential to feed both cows and the country's enormous energy appetite.
Four replicates of three grass species, orchardgrass, reed canarygrass
, and tall rescue were harvested at two dates.
This method has shown measurable selection gain for forage quality traits in reed canarygrass
, Phalaris arundinacea L.
Sorghum, grown by itself as an annual row crop, may produce a high forage yield but fail to protect soil from erosion as well as cool-season crops such as alfalfa or reed canarygrass
In contrast to [N.sub.2]--fixing alfalfa, established perennial forage grasses, such as reed canarygrass
, show marked yield improvement with manure slurry applications (Schmitt et al., 1999).
The reed canarygrass
is a tenacious invader that's driving out dozens of species of native plants and animals across thousands of acres of wetlands on the west side of the Cascades, scientists say.
