A long-lived, aggressive sod former valuable for quick cover. Very shade tolerant and moderately tolerant of saline and alkaline conditions. Does best in precipitation zones above 12”. Lincoln is more aggressive and is normally used on the plains, where Manchar is considered more of a northern or mountain variety. Can become sod-bound with adequate moisture but affords abundant grazing and serves as an anchor to resist soil and water erosion. Can be found in elevations up to 11,000 ft.
