Giant Sacaton, Sporobolus wrightii, is an impressive grass native to the arid Southwest. Deep-rooted and fast growing, it stands up to 8 feet tall and 4 feet wide and is ideal for providing windbreaks on farms and ranches.

At this Field Day, we will plant Giant Sacaton seedlings to reduce wind and water erosion—thereby building soil and fostering biodiversity.

Topic: Planting Giant Sacaton windbreaks.

Workstations include:

  • Sampling container plants;
  • Making a compost extract;
  • Soaking seedling roots in extract;
  • Planting seedlings;
  • Mulching.

We’ll post more details closer to the date of the field day.
