Quality of tall fescue festuca arundinacea cultivar kentucky 31 forage affected by mefluidide



Quality of tall fescue festuca arundinacea cultivar kentucky 31 forage affected by mefluidide



Journal of Agricultural & Food Chemistry 28(2): 391-393



Tall fescue (F. arundinacea Schreb. "Ky 31") was treated with mefluidide {N-[2,4-dimethyl-5-[[(trifluoromethyl)sulfonyl]amino]phenyl]acetamide} at 0, 0.28 and 0.56 kg/ha on April 29th in 1975 and 1976. Forage was sampled from May 20, 1975 through June 24, 1976, and cellulose, total sugar and crude protein content and dry matter yield were determined. Within 14 days after mefluidide treatment, percent cellulose was decreased, whereas percent sugar and crude protein were increased in tall fescue. Dry matter yields obtained 21 days after treatment were reduced by mefluidide treatments. Yield reduction was the result of inhibition of floral development by the mefluidide application. However, by the 2nd harvest date in both years, mefluidide treatments did not affect yields.
