 The widespread adaptability of crested wheatgrass, Agropyron cristatum (L.) Gaertn. and A.desertorum (Fisch.) Schult., has led to its extensive use in the range livestock industry. It has been seeded on 2 million acres in Western Canada. Extensive regrassing with crested wheatgrass began in the mid-1930s on abandoned farmlands and overgrazed rangelands in the dry areas of the Prairie Provinces (Clarke and Heinrichs, 1941). Since then, crested wheatgrass has also been used for pasture and hay in the moister areas of Western Canada.
