DescriptionRecent experimentation in grass seeding has shown that several different kinds may be successfully used to revegetate abandoned farm and range lands in the ponderosa pine zone of Colorado. Many visitors to the Manitou Experimental Forest (a branch of the Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, maintained by the U. S. Forest Service in cooperation with Colorado A & M College, Fort Collins, Colo.), near Woodland Park have asked, "Which grass is best?" To answer the question we have to consider growth characteristics of the grass, adaptability to elevation zones, rainfall pattern, side conditions, needs of the operator and what he wants to accomplish with his reseeding. Much of the success in reseeding depends on these factors and each operator should give them all, and especially the last one, careful consideration.
