Average yields of warm season perennial forage species increased as soil moisture increased for all species except sericea which yielded highest at the intermediate moisture regime. Total water used depended more upon the amount of available water in the soil than on plant species. Moisture was first extracted at a shallow depth beneath the plant, and then at successively lower depths.
