AbstractCrested wheatgrass production was negatively correlated with Wyoming big sagebrush crown cover. Each 1% increase in sagebrush crown cover was associated with a decline in crested wheatgrass production equivalent to 3.3 to 5.2% of its potential within the range of cover measured. Expression of this relationship in the above manner may enable sounder economic analysis than conventional methods now used.
