Leaves of 12 accessions of Brachiaria sp. (three accessions from each of four species) were subjected to tests of shearing strength using a Warner Bratzler meat shear. Morphological measurements of these leaves were also taken in an attempt to standardize shearing strength measurements per unit of leaf tissue. The technique was evaluated for its capacity to detect differences between accessions of the same species. All samples were also analysed for dry matter (DM), organic matter (OM), neutral… Expand
