AbstractBoer lovegrass, galleta, and blue grama germinate relatively well within a temperature range of 60 to 100 F, but the temperature range required for good germination of alkali sacaton and Lehmann lovegrass is limited to 80 to 90 and 60 to 70 F, respectively. Alternating temperatures were not superior to constant temperatures for promoting germination.
