Short-lived, tufted, and grows 12"-14 tall in the cool season. Good native cover crop in orchards and vineyards. Meadow Barley is especially useful in reclamation and erosion control situations a great pioneer plant, which gradually gives way to more productive grasses as the site improves.

Seedlings can take freezing temperatures when the plant matures; its tender foliage often turns reddish at low temperatures. Plant at 5-20 lb/acre or .25-0.5 lb/1000 sq ft.
