Release: Rattlesnake - squirreltail

This release is not currently available in the marketplace

SymbolELELE
Release NameRattlesnake
Release Typegermplasm
DescriptionBottlebrush squirreltail is a highly ecotypic grass that is in great demand for rangeland restoration applications because it is reported to be competitive with the invasive annual grass, downy brome (Bromus tectorum). Bottlebrush squirreltail germplasm from the Lower Snake River Plain of southern Idaho was collected, selected, and evaluated, leading to the development of Rattlesnake Germplasm. Its release will permit reclamation of lands that have been ravaged by wildfire as a result of downy brome invasion.
SourceElmore County, Idaho
Breeding MethodThis plant material was developed from T-1175, an accession collected in Elmore County, Idaho. Seeds of eight T-1175 lines selected for dry-matter yield, spike biomass, and height were combined to form Rattlesnake Germplasm.
Intended UseIt is anticipated that this material will be used primarily in its area of origin, the Lower Snake River Plain of Idaho.
