Frolik, E. F. & Keim, F. D. (1940). Buffalo grass for lawns (University of Nebraska Agricultural Experiment Station Circular No. 63)
During the years since 1934 many bluegrass lawns in Nebraska have suffered serious deterioration as a result of drouth and high summer temperature. As a substitute the native buffalo grass has been used increasingly for lawn purposes. Results of experiments and observations indicate definitely that for certain locations buffalo grass has sufficient advantage over bluegrass to recommend it as a permanent lawn grass.
