4 iii. Abstract Weather conditions such as drought and summer slump have prompted farmers to look for alternative sources of forage to help them in managing this type of risk in their farms. The farm’s future productivity will depend on understanding how to manage this type of risk. Planting forages that are more diverse can help mitigate such types of risks. These diverse forages include the drought-resistant varieties such as the native warm season grasses. This paper seeks to provide an analysis of the different types of Native warm-season grasses in the Mid- South part of the U.S. discussing the different uses of these grasses and their characteristics, and the establishment of these grasses and their site conditions such as the dry uplands and the bottom lands, and the advantages and disadvantages of these grasses. The native warm-season grass that will be discussed in this paper is Switchgrass and it will promote better understanding of the other nwsg s. Switchgrass contains all the characteristics of the native warm-season grasses and it is the best performing among all the nwsg species hence the best to study. Keywords Native warm-season grasses, Switchgrass, stand establishment, Biofuels, Wildlife habitat and cover, forage, seeding.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
