Tissue turnover, diet selection and animal production in three varieties of perennial ryegrass continuously stocked by sheep

Tissue turnover, diet selection and animal production in three varieties of perennial ryegrass continuously stocked by sheep

Occasional Symposium, British Grassland Society (21): 181-184

Plots of Lolium perenne S23, Melle and Mascot at sward heights of 2.5 or 3.5 cm were monitored over 2 grazing seasons in 1983-84. Melle had the highest rates of growth, senescence and net herbage production/tiller (NHP) (115.2 micro g/day) and Mascot the lowest rates (NHP 97.3 micro g/day). However, Mascot had the highest tiller population.
