AgCenter scientists have developed several fast-growing varieties of smooth cordgrass to promote stable, long-term coastal restoration. These new varieties increase genetic diversity and allow greater adaptation to environmental changes. The cordgrasses also produce a high number of viable seeds that could allow them to quickly establish a wide area and provide dense coverage. The varieties are most effective in natural brackish and saline marsh environments.
