Regreen™ is the premier product developed by Rainier Seeds for cover or nurse crop and erosion control applications where native seed is being used. It is a cross between annual wheat and perennial wheat grass. Regreen is a good choice for erosion control for native seed mixes because it does not compete with the native species during the establishment phase.
Under good growing conditions, perhaps half of the population will survive into the second year and a lesser number into the third growing season. Under more harsh conditions, survival should be expected to be less.
Both parents contribute some desirable traits. The wheat parent provides a large seed which is rapid-germinating for ease of stand establishment. The wheatgrass parent contributes excellent foliar disease tolerance and the ability to withstand long periods of drought.
Regreen™ is a sterile hybrid and will not set viable seed in the absence of outside wheat pollen.
Works with all types of soil moisture and is very drought tolerant.
This product typically germinates and grows when soil temperatures are above 45 degrees Fahrenheit.
Each site is individual based on characteristics and objectives. The application rate for Regreen™ seed is typically 20 to 40 pounds per acre.
