Influence of Fall Cutting in the Seeding Year on the Dry Matter and Nitrogen Yields of Legumes1
- Dale Smith2
At Madison, Wis., in 1951 and 1952, cutting top growth in September and October reduced the dry matter and nitrogen yields in the fall of the seeding year from alfalfa, red clover, and alsike clover. Reduction was especially marked in 1952 for alfalfa strains which were weakened by crown and root rot. Largest reductions from fall cutting were with the Arizona alfalfa.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
