Four rumen-cannulated buffalo bulls were fed mott grass diets using a 4 x 4 Latin square design. Treatments were arranged factorially and consisted of mott grass fertilized with 0 or 46 kg nitrogen per acre and harvested at 40 and 60 days of age. N fertilization improved the concentrations of NDF and ADF in early-cut mott grass (ECM) but, the acid detergent lignin (ADL) contents were higher in the late-cut mott grass (LCM).
