4576. Morrow, L.. 1989 Aug.. Cheatgrass: winter wheat nemesis.. Growers Guide, p. A6.
Describes the germination requirements of cheatgrass. Usually 90-95% of new seed germinates, and seldom does it germinate in late spring. Getting the seed in contact with the soil via tillage is essential to trigger germination. Also, a competitive crop is needed, and the use of starter fertilizer may give a crop a growth edge.
