Abstract: Native warm season grasses have developed the reputation of being difficult to establish. The recent introduction of Plateau herbicide by BASF has significantly increased establishment success. Anecdotal evidence, based upon five seasons of establishment experience, shows when Plateau herbicide and proper techniques are used, stands can be established in one growing season. In addition, using specified strategies, Plateau application rate and application timing can enhance existing stands infested with invasive exotic species and be used to speed the establishment of prairie restorations that include non-tolerant desirable species.
