Studies were conducted to determine the effects on herbage yield of removing mulch and standing dead plant litter during dormancy for up to 3 or more consecutive years. This inlormation is required to obtain a better understanding of the hnpiications of dormant season grazing on forage production. In 2 studies, mulch and standing litter were harvested at 3 or more annual frequencies from 2 X 2 m plots. One study was repeated in both the Fescue Prairie and Mixed Prairie communities and plant… CONTINUE READING
