Release Typecultivar
DescriptionFairly uniform, with good leaf production extending well up culms. Under irrigation and fertilization, plants mature at 1.5-1.8 m, yielding high-quality seed in excess of 180 kg per acre. Adapted to range and pasture seeding on sandy sites in southwestern Great Plains, where rainfall is erratic and relatively low. Performed well in eastern New Mexico and east-central and southeastern Colorado, but needs adequate testing farther north and east.
SourceCollected in 1956 and 1957 from sandy plains sites in eastern New Mexico (one near Hudson and one near Portales) at elevation of 1,222-1,255 m and average annual precipitation of 400-435 mm.
Breeding MethodIncreased separately, but combined in equal parts to produce heterogeneous second generation. In comparison-row planting and in initial increase, growth, flowering, and seeding characteristics of two collections were similar. Increased and tested as PM-NM-275.
Intended UseRange reseeding, dryland and irrigated pasture, and revegetation of disturbed areas
