Individual sand lovegrass [Erugrostis trichodes (Nutt.) Wood.] 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. After 3 years unclipped plants had the greatest survival rate and phnts harvested only once a year on June 10 or July 10 survived better than those with other harvest regimes. Top and root yields, new tiller counts, and total non-structural carbohydrate (TNC) levels were all…

Defoliation Effects on Yield and Bud and Tiller Numbers of Two Sandhills Grasses
TLDR
A 3-year field study was conducted in the Nebraska Sandhills to determine the effects of defoliation on yield and bud and tiller number of sand bluestem and prairie sandreed and found the optimum time and frequency was a single June or Julydefoliation for sand bluESTem and a June-August defoliated for prairiesandreed.
Defoliation effects on production and morphological development of little bluestem
TLDR
Little bluestem may not persist if exposed to multiple, close defolitions during the growing season, but single August or multiple defoliations generally reduced yield md development.
Effect of clipping on wall barley (Hordeum murinum L.): Tillering and forage production
TLDR
Investigation of the response of wall barley to clipping height at various stages of growth was investigated in the semi‐arid grassland of northeastern Jordan in the 1994/1995 and 1995/1996 growing seasons showed that clipping height had less of an effect on shoot weight and tiller number than time of clipping.
Effects of simulated grazing on growth and persistence of Artemisia frigida in a semiarid sandy rangeland
To assess the tolerance of fringed sagewort (Artemisia frigida Willd.) to grazing in semiarid sandy rangeland, forty-five fringed sagewort plants of similar size were chosen randomly from sandy
Effects of clipping on diversity and above‐ground biomass associated with soil fertility on an alpine meadow in the eastern region of the Qinghai‐Tibetan Plateau
TLDR
The hypothesis that effects of different clipping regimes on diversity on an alpine meadow are due to soil fertility is tested and the effects of clipping on species richness, diversity and above‐ground biomass based on the disturbance hypothesis is predicted.
Yield of Native Warm‐Season Grasses in Response to Nitrogen and Harvest Frequency
TLDR
Results suggest that rest periods should be based on species present, and that less frequent harvests are required for sustained DM yields, as well as agronomic nitrogen use efficiency.
Tiller hierarchy and defoliation frequency determine bud viability in the grass Poa ligularis
TLDR
The results show that P. ligularis can be defoliated up to twice a year without affecting bud viability, and thus its potential capacity for regrowth after defoliation is shown.
Defoliation of wall barley under sub-humid Mediterranean conditions
TLDR
Defoliation during the early vegetative stage optimised seed yield and forage quantity and quality in wall barley during growing seasons in the northern mountains of Jordan.

Dry matter accumulation of four warm season grasses in the Nebraska sandhills.
TLDR
Plant, leaf blade, and stem dry matter accumulation per shoot increased with successive harvests and were considerably greater both years for the tall grasses, sand bluestem and switchgrass, than for the mid-grasses.
Effects of Clipping on Yield and Tillering of Little Bluestem, Big Bluestem, and Indiangrass
TLDR
These warm-season perennial grasses are major forage species of glade ranges in the Ozarks and their responses to clipping were evaluated on the basis of changes in plant yield and in number and height of tillers and culms.
Effects of the subterranean aphid [Geoica utricularia (Passerini)] on forage yield and quality of sand lovegrass.
TLDR
In 1977 at Mead, Nebraska, replicated plots in two sand lovegrass nurseries naturally infested with root aphids were treated with soil drenches of carbofuran and disulfoton toquantify the economic importance of these aphids.
Effect of burning and clipping on big bluestem reserve carbohydrates.
TLDR
Late season clipping reduced carbohydrate reserves more than early season clipping, and rapid vegetative growth during mid-July reduced carbohydrate percentages in rhizomes and stem bases of big bluestem.
Carbohydrate Content of Underground Parts of Grasses As Affected by Clipping.
TLDR
Under range conditions there was no loss of molasses solids or urea nitrogen until light dews commenced about 50 days after spraying, and the molasses-urea mixture self-fed to weaner heifers on dry protein-deficient range was an ineffective supplement.

Two New Factors Affecting Resistance of Grasses to Grazing.
TLDR
During an investigation of the degeneration of range lands in the loess hills of central Nebraska, attention was given to the causes for the decrease of certain grasses and the corresponding increase in others and two new factors have been carefully studied.
Carbohydrate reserves of grasses: a review.
TLDR
The level of carbohydrate reserves in the lower regions of the stems apparently affects the regrowth rate for the first 2 to 7 days following herbage removal, and this initial effect from the level of carbohydrates reserves can be maintained during subsequent exponential growth.
