With ryegrass, 180 kg/ha N at sowing and 60 kg/ha after the first cut (taken at vegetative, boot, head or milk stages of growth) increased the protein content in forage of the first cut and in the aftermath at all stages, and also increased dry-matter digestibility at the vegetative and milk stages, and digestible crude protein and total digestible nutrients (highest values for the last two occurred at the milk stage) at all stages.
