Use of water by six grass species. 1. Dry-matter yields and response to irrigation


, : Use of water by six grass species. 1. Dry-matter yields and response to irrigation. Journal of Agricultural Science, UK 93(1): 13-24

The yield and quality of herbage produced by perennial ryegrass, cocksfoot, timothy, rough-stalked meadow grass, tall fescue and Italian ryegrass were examined without irrigation and under 2 irrigation regimes. Water was applied according to the potential soil water deficit (potential SWD): the soil was either partially returned to field capacity (FC) after each cut or fully returned to FC whenever the potential SWD reached 25 mm.
