Highlight: 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. Dry matter yields of plants clipped to 1.5 cm or at 3-week time frequencies declined the greatest with each successive year of clipping. Time of clipping during the growing season had less influence on total seasonal dry matter yields than did clipping height and frequency. This…

Effects of Defoliation on Yield and Forage Quality of Some Tropical Grasses, Legumes and their Mixtures
Buffel grass was the best dry matter producer among grasses in pure stand, while rhodes grass–butterfly pea mixture was thebest legume–grass mixture.
Productivity of irrigated tropical grasses under different clipping frequencies in the semidesert region of the Sudan.
On irrigated pastures, buffel grass, rhodes grass, bambatsi panicgrass, and green panicgrass were generally more productive than para grass, blue panic, and switchgrass. Clipping at,4and 6-week
Native Grasses for Biomass Production at High Elevations
Herbaceous perennial grasses as lignocellulosic resources are a preferred feedstock source for biofuels because they have a neutral carbon budget, require few agronomic inputs, can be readily managed
Investigating short-term grazing capacity changes in steppe and semi-steppe regions
One of the important objectives of natural resources management is to determine the range production in order to specify the range capacity. Determining the grazing capacity of forage plants may be
Physiological Ecology of North American Desert Plants
This book begins with the physical and biological characterization of the four North American deserts and a description of the primary adaptations of plants to environmental stress. In the following
Herbivorous and parasitic insect guilds associated with Great Basin wild rye (Elymus cinereus) in southern Idaho
The relatively high diversity of phytophages on wild rye may be due to its tall, bunchgrass growth form, its abundance within its habitat, its broad geographic range, and the large number of related species of grasses in the region.
In both years, Black Knight consistently outyielded Midnight in the Northeast and the Pacific Northwest regions of the USA; performance in the Southwest and Great Plains regions was inconsistent.
Genes and QTLs controlling inflorescence and stem branch architecture in Leymus (Poaceae: Triticeae) Wildrye.
Evidence suggests that loci controlling inflorescence and stem branch architecture in Leymus are conserved among the grasses, are governed by natural selection, and can serve as possible gene targets for improving seed, forage, and grain production.
Role of mycorrhizae and phosphorus availability in the arsenic-tolerance of basin wildrye (Elymus cinereus)
Using nanofiltration membranes for recovery of phosphorous with a second type of technology for the recovery of nitrogen is suggest to be a viable process, but the results are still questionable.
