Description

Reed canary grass, a fast-growing, perennial grass, is a major concern for wetland restorations because establishment of this grass often precludes colonization by desired vegetation in restored prairie pothole wetlands.

This comprehensive report outlines best management practices for controlling this grass in wetland restorations. The report results from a five-year study funded by the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
