Summary in English
The widespread adaptability of crested wheatgrass has led to its extensive use in the range livestock industry. It has been seeded on 1 million ha in Western Canada. Extensive regrassing with crested wheatgrass began in the mid-1930's on abandoned farmlands and overgrazed rangelands in the dry areas of the Prairie Provinces. Since then, crested wheatgrass has also been used for pasture and hay in the moister areas of Western Canada.
