Orchardgrass-alfalfa produced 2.5 tons per acre each year consisting of 35% alfalfa regardless of nitrogen level. Ladino clover in mixture 1 disappeared by the end of the second year and the remaining tall rescue or orchardgrass responded as pure-grass stands. The grasses yielded 1.0 to 2.9 tons per acre with 0 to 360 pounds of nitrogen per acre. Orchardgrass stands were markedly thinned with 240 pounds or more of nitrogen.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
