The study was carried out in Parnaiba, Brazil, aiming to evaluate the effects of three levels of nitrogen doses (150; 300 and 450 kgN.ha -1 ) and five plant age at cutting (28; 35; 42; 56 and 84 days) on height, dry matter, and biomass yield of elephant grass, cv. Napier. The experimental design was in complete randomized blocks, with 4 replications. Plant height was significantly influenced by plant age and nitrogen dose (450 kgN.ha -1 ). Plant dry matter, however, was influenced only by plant… CONTINUE READING
