Studies on the cutting management of grass-clover swards. 4. The effects of close and lax cutting on the yield of herbage from swards cut at different frequencies



Studies on the cutting management of grass-clover swards. 4. The effects of close and lax cutting on the yield of herbage from swards cut at different frequencies



J. agric. Sci., Camb, 66: Pt 1, 101-6. bibl. 5



The effect of cutting herbage to 1 or 2.5 in. from ground level at various frequencies was studied in 2 trials on a perennial-ryegrass/white-clover sward. In trial (a) the frequency of cutting was decided by the stage of growth, and in (b) the herbage was cut every 2, 4 or 6 weeks throughout the season. Yields of herbage DM were higher with cutting to 1 in., rather than to 2 in., at all cutting frequencies in both trials. In (b) close cutting gave a relatively greater increase in yield, compared with lax cutting, when the herbage was cut every 2 weeks instead of every 4 or 6.
