Effects of pruning on total carbohydrates of brachiaria decumbens

Effects of pruning on total carbohydrates of brachiaria decumbens

Revista da Sociedade Brasileira de Zootecnia 14(5): 522-528

Carbohydrate reserves in roots and stem bases of Brachiaria decumbens Stapf in a field experiment as influenced by number and seasonal clipping are reported in this study. The results showed that total nonstructural carbohydrates stores in roots and stem bases followed similar patterns during the study. Carbohydrates reserves varied significantly with the plant stage. Stem bases showed higher levels of carbohydrates than roots. The levels of carbohydrate reserves in roots were reduced after clipping but were not in stem bases as a result of the single or combined clipping treatments of this study.
