Long recognized as a shade tolerant forage grass, orchardgrass is known as "cocksfoot" in Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. Well adapted to snow-covered valleys, and to both high rainfall and irrigated regions of the Pacific Northwest, this grass will not thrive in wet soils or under prolonged flooding. Photographs and illustrations identify cultivars while the text covers use, establishment, fertilization, cutting, grazing management, and pest control. 20 pages.
