AbstractCrested and fairway wheatgrasses have been growing together and spreading in southern Idaho for over 30 years and are well-adapted to Idaho. We found that fairway produces only 79% as much herbage as crested, but that it had spread 112% further by seed and is grazed more uniformly. Both species spread more in eastern than in southwestern Idaho.
