Grass plant density for adequate Conservation Reserve Program stands






Proceedings of the XVI International Grassland Congress, 4-11 October 1989, Nice, France: 1631-1632

Grass plant density for adequate Conservation Reserve Program stands

To determine what constitutes an acceptable grass stand when first-year productivity is not required by economic considerations, Bromus inermis and Agropyron desertorum were sown in containers in the greenhouse and transplanted to the field in early autumn into equidistant stands of 11, 21, 32, 43, 54 and 96 plants/msuperscript 2. Forage yield of both species increased with increasing plant density in the first year, but was unaffected by plant density in the second and subsequent years.
