The genus Agrostis, of the Gramineae, includes about 125 species that occur in temperate and subarctic climates as well as at high altitudes in tropical and subtropical zones. A. alba (Redtop) (Fig. 1) is native to Europe, Asia, and N. America and adapts to a wide range of soil conditions in these areas.
