731-Investigation of Indaziflam for Invasive Annual Grass Control and Perennial Grass Establishment
Principle Investigator: Tom Getts, Weed Ecology & Cropping Systems Advisor, Lassen County, Susanville.
- To determine effectiveness of invasive annual grass control after indaziflam and aminocyclopyrachlor application.
- To assess secondary weed invasion after annual grass herbicide applications.
- To determine perennial species herbicide tolerance, and establishment potential.
762-Tall Fescue Isogenic Population Evaluation
Principle Investigator: Charles Brummer; Co-PI's: Tami Leathers, Leslie Roche, Daniel Putnam, Josh Davy.
- The objective of this project is to determine the adaptation of tall fescue ecotypes with and without endophytes across California.
784-Influence of Fall Defoliation Height on the Productivity of Three Perennial Grasses
Principle Investigator: ; David Lile, County Director/Farm Advisor, Lassen County, Susanville
- Compare the yield potential of the three most commonly grown perennial grass species in the Intermountain Region.
- Evaluate the effect of three different fall herbage heights on the subsequent growth of tall fescue, orchardgrass and Timothy.
- Determine the effect of fall herbage height on water soluble carbohydrates the following spring and determine the relationship between water soluble carbohydrates and pasture growth.
- Estimate the biomass and nutritive value of fall/winter harvested forage of each treatment (using #1 as benchmark) to demonstrate how much fall forage producers would have to forego to implement higher stubble-height management strategy.
