Tissue turnover and animal production on perennial ryegrass swards continuously stocked by sheep to maintain two sward surface heights



Tissue turnover and animal production on perennial ryegrass swards continuously stocked by sheep to maintain two sward surface heights



Occasional Symposium, British Grassland Society (21): 149-152



In studies in 1983-84 on Lolium perenne swards continuously stocked by ewes and lambs to achieve av. sward height of 2.5 or 3.5 cm, the latter had highest growth and senescence rates and net herbage production per tiller, whereas the former had a higher tiller population. As swards increased in height growth rates increased but on being grazed towards their target heights growth rates fell rapidly; senescence rates remained largely unchanged throughout.
