• Some Factors Influencing Tolerance to Moisture Stress of Three Range Grasses

      Schlatterer, E. F.; Hironaka, M. (Society for Range Management, 1972-09-01)
      Pre-conditioning of bluebunch wheatgrass, squirreltail and Thurber stipa plants by exposure to different temperatures and watering schedules affected their tolerance to moisture stress. Plants conditioned under high or low temperatures were more resistant to moisture stress than plants conditioned at moderate temperature. Plants grown in fertile mound soil were less conditioned to withstand moisture stress than those grown in less fertile intermound soil.
