“How Grasses Grow,” a new website resource for ranchers, land managers and landowners, is now available through the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.
The multi-faceted site, https://agrilife.org/howgrassesgrow, was developed by Dr. Morgan Russell, AgriLife Extension range specialist at San Angelo. It features information on vegetative reproduction of perennial grasses, a brief description of West-Central Texas dominant grass bud banks, fire effects on representative warm and cool season grasses, and published journal articles on bud banks.
“This website is meant to help the viewer gain a deeper understanding of how grasses grow, and the many differences existing among native and non-native, perennial grass species,” Russell said.
The site serves as a database for species-specific information on some of the dominant grass species in Texas.
