Dynamics in tiller weight and its association with herbage mass and tiller density in a bahia grass (Paspalum notatum) pasture under cattle grazing



Dynamics in tiller weight and its association with herbage mass and tiller density in a bahia grass (Paspalum notatum) pasture under cattle grazing



Tropical Grasslands 36(1): 24-32



Dynamics in tiller weight and its association with herbage mass and tiller density were investigated for 2 years in a bahia grass (Paspalum notatum) pasture under cattle grazing in Japan, in an effort to characterize the dynamics in tiller weight and its components (live laminae, dead laminae and stem with leaf sheaths), to compare contributions of tiller density and tiller weight to herbage mass and to examine the existence of the self-thinning rule in bahia grass.
