Abstract:

"(1) Meadow fescue is largely called "English bluegrass." but that name should be discarded for the correct one. (2) Meadow fescue is most important in eastern Kansas and southeastern Nebraska. (3) This grass should be utilized more largely in the pasture mixtures of East-Central States (4) The peculiar advantages of meadow fescue for use in mixtures are certain and strong germination from seed, its palatability, and its ability to endure trampling and to thrive in wet, "gumbo" spots. (5) The production of meadow fescue seed has been quite an important industry over a considerable section in eastern Kansas, but the area devoted to it is decreasing on the account of the prevalence of rust and the uncertainty as to price of seed. (6) The worst impurity in commercial meadow fescue seed is ordinary cheat (Bromus secolinus, which is quite common in the meadow fescue fields of Kansas.(7) A substitute for meadow fescue if the rust makes its production unprofitable can be found in tall fescue, which appears to be rust resistant.
