YELLOW INDIANGRASS. A SPECIAL STUDY OF SELECTION, ESTABLISHMENT AND MAINTENANCE OF VEGETATION FOR EROSION CONTROL OF ROADSIDE AREAS IN GEORGIA

Yellow Indiangrass (Sorghastrum nutans (L.) Nash) was seeded at 12 pounds per acre on 40 individual plot areas throughout Georgia. Plantings were made in both spring and fall of 1971 as supplemental plots to trials being established as the major plots of a roadside vegetation erosion control study. Yellow Indiangrass has many strains which are widely adapted throughout Georgia and surrounding states. It grows well in full sun and in partial shade. Spring plantings have produced better cover and thicker stands than fall seedings. Preliminary trials have shown little benefit for added fertilization. Marked thickening of stands has occurred over the three years of observation.
