Dry-matter yields of bromegrass and a bromegrass-alfalfa mixture were significantly increased by the application of irrigation water as compared with no irrigation. Irrigating at various soil moisture levels, however, had little or no effect on yield. Nitrogen fertilizer increased yields at all levels of soil moisture regardless of whether the forage was harvested at hay stage or clipped frequently to simulate removal of the forage by grazing. The percentage alfalfa in mixture with bromegrass increased with irrigation.
