  1. A. W. Burger,

Smooth bromegrass-legume mixtures produced more dry matter per season than orchardgrasslegume mixtures. Alfalfa-grass mixtures produced higher yields than Ladino clover-grass mixtures. Orchardgrass mixtures produced more herbage at the late compared to the early harvests and contained lower percentages of legume than the smooth bromegrass mixtures. Yields of the various mixtures were greater and less, respectively, at the hay and pasture frequencies than at the silagefrequency of cutting.
