Yields of Coastal bermudagrass, rhodesgrass, pangolagrass, and stargrass increased markedly following split applications of nitrogen at rates up to 300 pounds of N per acre annually.

Ranked in descending order of yield and efficiency of nitrogen utilization in forage production the grasses are: rhodesgrass, Coastal bermudagrass, stargrass, and pangolagrass.
