This 10-plant quiz was put together to test attendees at the American Forage & Grassland Council Conference, held Jan. 9-11 in Louisville, KY. Only one person – a University student – was able to identify all 10 of the plants. A special thanks to Ray Smith, University of Kentucky forage specialist, and technician Gabriel Roberts, for providing it.
Attendees had the advantage of being able to physically touch and view the plants. But we'll at least narrow down which forage plants are being considered. Match the above photos to the plant names below. Then compare your answers at Plant Quiz: How Well Did You Do?
