Abstract/Contents:"Ten individual grass species and ten mixtures, which were comprised of these species, were seeded at two different sites in June of 1995. These sites were located in Edmonton and Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta. Research plots were replicated and larger individual plots were established for demonstration purposes. During the establishment year the fine leaf fescues; Nakiska sheep fescue, Aurora hard fescue, Dawson creeping red fescue or mixtures that included a high percentage of these three showed the highest area cover ratings. Three of the native grasses; Junegrass, Alpine Bluegrass and green needle grass showed the lowest area covers. In year two, Aurora hard fescue and Nakiska sheep fescue had high area cover ratings and were relatively low growers. In general, those mixes of grasses that contained higher amounts of these two performed well."
