Taking the data of 1 October as an example, the fitted rill credibilities of switchgrass, smooth bromegrass
, and bare soil were 0.0018, 0.0006 and 0.0829 s [m.sup.-1] respectively.
Key words: biomass energy, harvest timing, nitrogen application rate, smooth bromegrass
, tufted hairgrass, slender wheatgrass
Surplus or damaged hay crops of alfalfa or smooth bromegrass
Forage grasses include Kentucky bluegrass, Canada bluegrass, orchard grass, perennial ryegrass, reed canary grass, smooth bromegrass
, tall fescue, timothy, prairie grass, garrison grass, and bermudagrass.
Orchard grass is much like bromegrass
but not quite as satisfactory.
When irrigation is unavailable in these areas, extremely drought-tolerant species such as crested wheatgrass and smooth bromegrass
should be planted.
Soil chemical properties after long-term N fertilization of bromegrass
: Nitrogen rate.
This is comparable to genetic gains reported on selection for reduced NDF concentration, up to -5.8 g [kg.sup.-1] DM cycle 1 in stems and -4.9 g [kg.sup.-1] DM cycle-1 in leaf sheaths of smooth bromegrass
(Bromus inermis L.) (Casler, 1999).
Davenport and Thomas (1988) studied photo-assimilation and rhizodeposition in corn and bromegrass
, by covering the soil surface with plastic or a mat of moss and algae in an attempt to minimise [sup.14]C[O.sub.2] diffusion into soil.
cuspidata), Little Bluestem (Schizachryrium scoparium), and Smooth Bromegrass
This project measured the effect of depth on the root length density and root diameter on three grass species: Big Bluestem (Andropogen furcatus), Smooth Bromegrass
(Bromus inermis), and Switchgrass (Panicum virgatum).
Now, 5,000 acres that never saw a plow but were planted in fire-resistant bromegrass
for leased pasture will be restored as the largest contiguous block of native tallgrass prairie in the upper Midwest.
