This tract of government-owned land is located two miles north and four miles west of Elkhart, Morton County, Kansas. Formerly cultivated but severely eroded, the land was seeded to native grass in the spring of 1939. The grasses were a mixture of sand bluestem, weeping love grass, sand love grass, blue grama, and side-oats grama drilled on sorghum cover. The primary vegetation in this image is sand bluestem, side-oats grama and sand love grass. Photo by L.A. Graham, Soil Conservation Service.
