A propagation study of Achnatherum hymenoides (Indian Rice Grass) and Prosopis pubescens (Screwbean Mesquite) conducted for the Bureau of Land Management under the Seeds of Success and National Seed Strategy programs respectively, conducted at Victor Valley College.
This study focused on recreating past germination trials for A. hymenoides in addition to alternative nutrient applications to P. pubescens seedlings to see if germination and survivability rates of seedlings could be increased without the need of extensive methods or expensive means for commercially viable options for the purposes of seed production and restoration efforts.
