AbstractSeeding of pasture plants in a desert in a 78-mm rainfall year resulted in complete failure of all perennials to establish themselves. Annuals, on the other hand, in spite of stunted growth, completed their life cycle and produced seed. Water-spreading is a pre-requisite for successful establishment of perennial pasture plants under desert conditions.
