AbstractSeedings of Russian wildrye were made in Tintic Valley, Utah, to determine the effects of seeding method, seeding rate, season of planting, and seed type on stand establishment. After 3 years, more plants were established by commercial seed than by seeds of the improved Vinall strain. Initially the 12-pound rate of seeding established more plants than either the 6 or 9 pound rate, and drilling established more plants than broadcast seeding. However, by the third year little difference among seeding methods was evident. Use of a heavy seeding rate of 24 lb/acre in an attempt to have viable seed in the soil for more than one growing season was a failure.
