Leaf and Stem Yields and Forage Quality of Three N‐fertilized Warm‐Season Grasses1
Rapid declines occurred in leaf crude protein and IVDMD throughout the growing season, indicating that leaf maturation primarily is responsible for declining forage quality rather than increasing plant development, i.e., increasing stem growth, in these grasses.

Yield, Vigor, and Persistence of Sand Lovegrass [ Eragrostis trichodes (Nutt.) Wood] Following Clipping Treatments
Individual sand lovegrass plants on a choppy sands range site in Nebraska’s Sandhills were clipped with 7 different harvest regimes for 3 years to determine critical defoliation times and it was found that a critical time to defoliate grasses was during July 10.
Effects of clipping on dry matter yields of basin wildrye.
Total seasonal dry matter yields of individual spaced basin wildrye plants clipped to three heights and reclipped at three time frequencies declined drastically each successive year from 1970 through 19 73, suggesting that grazing basin wilder during the growing season may be possible on a limited basis only.
Composition of corn and grain sorghum residues
The use of maize and sorghum residues for beef cattle forage is reviewed. DM yields of maize residues tended to be higher than those of sorghum but yields were affected by agronomic practices,
Serial Measures of Dry Matter Accumulation and Forage Quality of Leaves, Stalks, and Ears of Three Corn Hybrids1
The greatest plant protein and IVDMD yield occurred at the last harvest, physiological maturity, both years for all hybrids, and less variation was detected in forage quality for each plant component.
