A Measurement of the Contributions of Ten Species to Pasture Mixtures1
- J. A. Jackobs2
Alfalfa and orchardgrass had the greatest influence on production of pasture seeding mixtures. Ladino clover fluctuated widely due to winterkilling and reseeding. Smooth bromegrass, perennial ryegrass, red clover, alsike clover, and birdsfoot trefoil declined after the first year of production. Initial stands of tall fescue and timothy were not adequate to evaluate these species. After disappearance of a shortlived species from a mixture, there was only temporary reduction in yield if either alfalfa or orchardgrass was present.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
