SymbolACMIO
Release NameYakima
Release Typesource-identified
DescriptionWestern yarrow is an important, abundant forb in the bluebunch wheatgrass–sagebrush plant communities of the Intermountain and Northwest regions of the USA. It is rhizomatous and drought tolerant enabling it to recruit into disturbed areas and often competes well with invasive weedy species.
SourceWildland seed (generation G0) was collected on 31 July through 2 Aug. 2000, from 27 locations representing seven different ecological sites at the U.S. Army Yakima Training Center (YTC) at Yakima, WA.
Breeding MethodYakima is a multi-origin germplasm generated by combining germplasm from multiple environments, each possibly with a different co-adapted gene complex, to enhance establishment over a range of semiarid ecosystems. Approximately 2000 seedlings from the wildland-collected G0 seed, equally representing all collection sites, were started in the greenhouse and transplanted to a field near Logan, UT, in spring of 2001. Seed was harvested from these plants in 2002 and composited together to form the G1 generation.
Intended UseYakima Germplasm western yarrow is intended for use in the rehabilitation and restoration of western rangelands.
