A. pratensis is native to Europe and Asia. It has been introduced to most temperate grassland regions worldwide and is found throughout North and South America and Australia.

    Creeping meadow foxtail, Alopecurus arundinaceus, is a long-lived perennial, cool-season, introduced sod-forming, grass that grows 12 to 24 inches tall. It is extremely winter-hardy and recovers quickly from grazing due to its numerous aggressive underground rhizomes. Creeping meadow foxtail is palatable to all classes of livestock.

    Western Canada is dependent on about twenty grass species and about five legume species that are used to produce forage for ruminants and horses. Each plant species has its own unique growth requirements, range of environmental adaptation, and production pattern, yet there is a general perception that growing forages is EASY (King, ). Rugged ST – A tough and hardy variety with deep-set crowns that is able to tolerate a variety of conditions, including increased salinity. TH2 – A winter-hardy multifoliate that is a strong performer that consistently delivers very high yields and exceptional quality. Download Spec Sheet. Response WT – Performs well on medium to heavy.

Creeping Meadow Foxtail - Sod forming, highly palatable, well adapted to wet meadow ng Foxtail, is a long lived, cool season perennial grass used throughout the northern United : $   The relatively small increase in forage quality does not appear to compensate for the large decline in hay yield (a 40% decline in the shortest grazing duration treatment).

We recommend that unfertilized meadow foxtail pastures be used for either haying or grazing, but not both in a given growing by: 8. In alpine areas meadow foxtail is one of the first grasses to grow in the spring giving wildlife some forage soon after the snow melts.

It is well suited to moist alpine meadows. 20 For soil conservation, meadow foxtail may be of some use in waterlogged areas. Meadow foxtail Common ( ton) * Fertilized after each cutting for an annual average of lb/ac N and 55 lb/ac P The forage yields of the meadow brome releases in this study are Growing meadow foxtail for forage book significantly Size: KB.

Garrison Creeping Foxtail, also know as creeping meadow foxtail, is a cool-season, sod-forming grass introduced from Eurasia. It is strongly rhizomatous grass, forming a dense sod. Garrison is robust and maintains growth throughout the growing season, producing an almost continuous, quality forage.

Like desirable forage grasses, foxtail is not deterred by mowing. In fact, if you regularly mow it to a short height, you will end up with very short foxtail seed heads that are below your mower height. To use this method, you must let the grass grow tall before producing seed heads.

Creeping foxtail should not be confused with other grass species that share the common name foxtail.

Creeping foxtail is a close relative of meadow foxtail (Alopecurus pratensis) and can be distinguished by having broader leaves ( mm vs. mm) and a dark purplish inflorescen ce.

Leaves: approximately 5mm wide, smooth and hairless. This informational paper describes proper foxtail management and control in a forage setting. Foxtail is a problematic grass in pastures and hayground, and infestations need immediate attention.

Small infestations of foxtail should be spot treated, while larger infestations require whole pasture renovation. The tender spring growth also provides forage for geese and other waterfowl.

Numerous species of birds use the dense growth for cover and nesting habitat. Creeping foxtail has been used for plantings around ponds, lakes, grassed waterways and other waterways. Adaptation. Creeping foxtail is adapted to cold temperatures and wet conditions. Once meadow foxtail is in your fields, it will be difficult to eradicate completely.

The seeds move with harvest machinery, animals, and to a lesser degree, wind and water. In fields with a significant amount of meadow foxtail, taking the first cutting early will reduce the spread of viable meadow foxtail seeds and result in better forage quality. Guide to Common Grasses in Central Oregon This non-technical guide to some common grasses of Central Oregon is the result of an awkward situation I experienced several years ago.

I was a volunteer at the OSU Master Gardener desk in the Deschutes County Extension office. A client new to the area came in to ask if the grasses she had in. Creeping and meadow foxtail are responsive to high levels of N.

However, with high N fertilization, the potential for unsafe nitrate accumulations in the foxtails is present. Adequate N fertilization is required to maintain productive hay and pasture fields.

At high elevations and wet meadows, creeping foxtail is used extensively for hay. In March of three years (,and ), 48 plots within a meadow foxtail dominated meadow were fertilized with 0, 36, 72, or lb of nitrogen/acre, applied as urea during March of each year.

Forage yield was determined at three consecutive weekly intervals each year beginning as soon as the ground was dry enough for haying equipment. Meadow foxtail (Alopecurus pratensis) is a long-lived, somewhat sod-forming grass adapted to cool, moist sites. Very early growing, it has excellent flooding tolerance but is not salt tolerant.
