 Forage Introductions
A series of bulletins were released over an extended period of years that contain comparisons of the seed- and herbage-producing potential of numerous varieties of many species of forage/amenity grasses and legumes, when grown in the Peace River region. The experimental information was obtained from single plots (5 rows, each 6.1 m long and spaced 30 cm apart) sown at Beaverlodge starting around the mid-1960s.
