One such species that is among the top ten most common non-native species in Southern Ontario is Orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata), whose detrimental effects have led to a decline in the native plant population of Southeastern Ontario.
(2012) showed that the dry biomass productions of the first and second years were not influenced by the biochar application, while dactylis glomerata which was grown in the third year got the signifiant increasing of crop height and total dry biomass, especially at the higher application rate of 50 t ha-1.
The most common and widespread grasses in this habitat were Dactylis glomerata, Digitaria ciliaris, Eleusine indica, Eragrostis pectinacea, Festuca subverticillata, Poa annua, P.
