Field guide to selected native forages for the Canadian prairie grasslands .: A22-603/2018E-PDF

"This field guide was developed to provide livestock and forage producers, the forage and beef industry, and the general public identification information of native forage species which occur on the Canadian prairies. This guide includes a selection of twenty different native forages including grasses, legumes and a shrub. It includes descriptions of the main identifying characteristics, photographs, and/or line drawings as well as information on the natural habitat, and forage quality for each species. In some cases we have included a “look-a-like” section, to help the user eliminate those plants which may appear most similar"--Introd., p. 2.
