Critical area planting in the United States of America

  • Jaaback G


The importance of vegetation on disturbed or critical areas of the United States of America has long been evident. A wide range of climatic, soil and environmental conditions has resulted in a search for suitable grass species and methods for their establishment. Plant material centres have done considerable work in evaluating and selecting both indigenous and imported grasses and forbs that will assist in the conservation of soil on these critical areas.
