Decomposition rates of native and improved cultivars of grasses in the Northern Great Plains


Decomposition rates of native and improved cultivars of grasses in the Northern Great Plains

Decomposition is a critical process that links the above- and below-ground portions of the nutrient cycle. A study was initiated in North Dakota, USA, to evaluate the decomposition rate between three genetically improved grass species monocultures, Agropyron desertorum, Bromus inermis, and Pascopyrum smithii, and two native perennial grass species occurring in area rangelands, Nassella viridula and Bouteloua gracilis.
