USGA Summary Points:Prairie junegrass has shown potential as a low-input turf for cold climates due to its tolerance of extreme temperatures, slow growth rate, drought tolerance. There are a number of barriers to widespread use of this species, including susceptibility to rust disease, slow establishment, and poor seed production. We have conducted research on the soil microbial communities associated with prairie junegrass and found that significant differences in these microbial communities.
