Siberian Wheatgrass is a very drought tolerant bunchgrass similar to Standard Crested Wheatgrass but finer and more palatable. It is also more drought tolerant…it will survive in areas of 5″ annual precipitation, making it one of the very best candidates for the arid lands of the west.

Siberian Wheatgrass is a perennial, introduced grass. It is commonly seeded in the arid sections of the Western United States. Siberian wheatgrass is commonly recommended for forage production in arid locations. It is palatable to all classes of livestock and wildlife. It is a preferred feed for cattle, sheep, horses, and elk in spring and also in the fall, if additional growth occurs from late growing season rainfall. It is considered a desirable feed for deer and antelope in spring and again in fall, if additional growth occurs. It is generally not recommended in areas with more than 14 inches of annual rainfall because better alternative forage species are available.

Siberian wheatgrass is well adapted for the stabilization of disturbed soils. It competes well with other aggressive introduced plants during the establishment period. Siberian wheatgrass is generally less desirable in mixes with native species because it is competitive and can out-compete slower developing native species.

Its drought tolerance, fibrous root system, and excellent seedling vigor make Siberian wheatgrass ideal for reclamation in areas receiving 8 inches or more annual precipitation. This grass can be used in urban areas where irrigation water is limited to provide ground cover, weed control and to stabilize ditch banks, dikes, pipelines, power lines, and roadsides.

Where it is planted as a monoculture, the resulting biodiversity is lower than that found in a diverse seeded or native plant community. In revegitative projects, Siberian Wheatgrass has gained favor over other species of wheatgrass.

Also known as Agropyron sibericum.
