Prairie Wedge Grass (Sphenopholis obtusata)

This Little-Known Grass is Great Forage in Late Winter

Prairie Wedge Grass (Sphenopholis obtusata), though relatively unknown, is a Native Cool Season Grass that can provide stockpile forage for cattle during the fall, winter, and spring. Colt Hamilton shows the growth on Prairie Wedge Grass in late winter, discusses how this quality green growth can balance with the brown Native Warm Season Grass growth from the previous growing season, and how Prairie Wedge Grass can share space with larger grasses in a Diverse Native Grassland.
