Synopsis

Synopsis

Tall fescue-legume mixtures produced more dry matter per season than smooth bromegrass-legume mixtures. Tall fescue combinations, compared to smooth bromegrass combinations, were especially high yielding at the pasture frequency of cutting, at last harvests in each season, and in non-Ladino clover versus Ladino clover mixtures. Smooth bromegrass was less persistent than tall fescue when in mixture with legumes and there was a higher percentage of legumes and more weed encroachment in the bromegrass-legume mixtures.
