Lockeford Plant Materials Center Updated:09/2021

The Center provides plant solutions for the diverse Californian landscape and serves the Mediterranean climate portions of California. This area is uniquely characterized by its six-month summer dry season and six-month winter rainy season.The CAPMC’s conservation plant releases include native releases: purple needlegrass, California brome, blue wildrye, sulfur flower buckwheat, inland saltgrass, and fourwing saltbush. Our non-native releases include Berber orchard grass used for range and pasture enhancement, and ‘Lana’ woollypod vetch with utility for cover crops. We continue to develop plant technology for addressing resource concerns, which in California include water-use efficiency for water quality and quantity, air quality wildlife habitat and land restoration especially in riparian areas.
