AbstractApplication of ammonium nitrate stimulated early spring growth initiation of Utah crested wheatgrass pastures. Application rates of 25 to 30 lb N per acre hastened spring range readiness by 11 to 13 days. During 1973, the initial year studied, ranchers could have profitably substituted crested wheatgrass fertilization for purchased hay.
