- Indian ricegrass (Achnatherumhymenoides (Roem. & Schult.) Barkworth) is a highly palatable forage for livestock and wildlife, making it a valuable conservation species (Ogle et al. 2013).
- Seed dormancy of this species often results in poor or failed plantings (Jones 1990).Reducing seed dormancy of Indian ricegrass before planting may improve seeding success.
- As this species exhibits both physical and physiological dormancy, several treatment strategies are necessary (Jones 1990).
