• Effect on pH on Germination of Three Grass Species

      Stubbendieck, J. (Society for Range Management, 1974-01-01)
      Hydrogen-ion concentration (pH) affected the percent germination of weeping lovegrass, sand bluestem, and blue panic in laboratory tests. The latter two species exhibited the ability to germinate over a wide pH range but showed repressed germiantion at pH levels near neutrality. Tests using water of unknown pH may not provide a true indication of potential germination.
