The changes in content of cell-wall constitutes were measured during 60 days of the 1st growth and during 30 days of 1st and 2nd regrowths of Italian ryegrass. The rate of increase of the lignin + silica content was greatest in the 1st regrowth and least in the 2nd regrowth. The content of lignin + silica was highest in the 2nd regrowth. The content of non-crystallized material increased during each growth period.
