Studies on chemical composition and feeding value in forage crops. 13. Effect of the stage of maturity in spring and the time of repeated harvest in regrowth period on the chemical composition and feeding value of Ladino clover (Trifolium repens latum) grown in the warmer Setouchi district in Japan
Jap. J. Zootech. Sci 40: 341-348
For part 12 see Abst. 338, Vol. 39. 13. Effects of the time of repeated harvest in regrowth period as well as the stage of maturity in spring on the feeding value of ladino clover have been studied in 1966 and 1967. As the plant matured in spring the contents of crude fibre and crude lignin increased considerably whereas that of crude protein (CP) decreased. The content of P also decreased slightly. The Ca content increased slightly after an initial decrease.
