The effects of temperature on digestibility of timothy (Phleum pratense L.) tested in growth chambers






Grass and Forage Science 47(3): 306-308

The effects of temperature on digestibility of timothy (Phleum pratense L.) tested in growth chambers

P. pratense Bottnnia II plants grown in pots outdoors were transferred to growth chambers where the day temperatures were kept at 9, 13, 17 or 21 degrees C. The plants were at 1-2 leaves, 3-leaf or at ear-emergence growth stages. They were then harvested at weekly intervals for up to 6 weeks.

Thorvaldsson, G., 1992: The effect of temperature on growth, development and nitrogen in shoots and roots in timothy (Phleum pratense L.) tested in growth chambers. P. pratense was sown in pots outdoors and placed in 4 growth chambers at different mean temperatures (8, 12, 16 and 20 degrees C) at 3 different phenological stages. Plants were harvested regularly from the chambers and from pots left outside. The...

Effects of surface cultivation, defoliation and N application on the suppression of timothy growth. Sowing T. pratense into a P. pratense sward by partial cultivation using a slot-sower or by full cultivation using disc or rotary harrowing all gave a good seedbed for T. pratense. Full cultivation suppressed growth of P. pratense, giving a T. pra...
