SymbolELLAL
Release NameBannock
Release Typecultivar
DescriptionThe original seed collections were planted in 1948. In the late 1950's, six individual plants that were more vigorous and productive were selected, increased under isolation and seed bulked. The first generation seed was planted at Tetonia, Idaho and seed from Tetonia was planted at Knoll Creek, Nevada. Seed from Knoll Creek was then brought back to the Aberdeen Plant Materials Center for seed increase. Bannock is a long-lived, leafy, cool season perennial grass. It is rhizomatous, with good sod-producing qualities. Bannock has been compared to other thickspike wheatgrass cultivars at sites throughout the western United States and is taller, leafier and more productive. There are no awns.
