Timothy produced more dry matter than bromegrass and orchardgrass when grown in pure stands without nitrogen fertilizer and in association with trefoil-red clover.

Bromegrass yielded slightly more than timothy and orchardgrass in the alfalfa-ladino association and in nitrogen-fertilized stands managed as hay. Crude protein production was usually in the following order: bromegrass, timothy, and orchardgrass.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
