Time of harvest affects yield and composition of native prairie



Time of harvest affects yield and composition of native prairie



North Dakota Farm Research 44(2): 18-21



In the 4th and 5th years of a study undertaken in 1977-81 in which vegetation at 2 sites was left uncut or cut to a height of 1 inch on 1 of 5 dates between 28 May and 23 July, herbage was removed and regrowth from 1 cut in May and 2 cuts in June was sampled at monthly intervals until early Sep. Stands and yields of forbs and Bouteloua gracilis were generally increased and of cool season grasses somewhat reduced by early harvesting.
