Species exhibiting superior recovery capacity, rape and sudangrass, produced highest drymatter yields. Considering the first cutting only, differences in percent crude protein and dry-matter yields among crops were highly significant (P=0.01). Harvestdate delay, studied over a 3-week period, resulted in an approximate 340-pound-per-acre dry matter increase to each percentage point decline in crude protein. Moisture percentages of early-summer crops decreased more rapidly with advancing maturity than those of late-summer crops.
