Estimation of proportions of grasses, legumes and other plant types in forage based on their chemical composition






Revue Suisse d' Agriculture 27(1): 37-40

Estimation of proportions of grasses, legumes and other plant types in forage based on their chemical composition

Samples of forage from natural and cultivated grasslands were manually separated into grasses, legumes and other dicotyledonous plants to determine proportions of the different plant types. The samples were then reconstituted and their chemical composition analysed.
