Relative palatabilities of grasses under cultivation on the northern Great Plains


Relative palatabilities of grasses under cultivation on the northern Great Plains



Journal of the American Society of Agronomy 36(6): 487-496

Investigations undertaken in the experiment were for the purpose of determining relative palatabilities and seasonal use of various species and strains of grasses as a guide in the proper compounding of mixtures and their management. Bromegrass was preferred to all other species of cool-season grasses under early and continuous grazing. Fairway crested wheatgrass was much less palatable than strains of Standard crested wheatgrass under early grazing. Russian wild-rye was low in palatability in the early season but was preferred later. Big bluestem was the most palatable species tested. Little bluestem was palatable in the early season but was avoided when it became mature. Buffalograss was the last species to be eaten of the warm-season group. Mature crested wheatgrass was low in palatability and did not rate above reed canary.
