Trials conducted by the Department of Agronomy at Davis indicate the possibility of producing successful seed crops of several perennial grasses adapted to the Great Plains areas. Species showing the most promise include sideoats grama, weeping lovegrass, sand lovegrass, Boer lovegrass, and Lehmann lovegrass.
