Synopsis

Synopsis

Burning of the straw and stubble after harvest was beneficial in maintaining high seed yields of intermediate wheatgrass. Mechanical removal of every other foot of vegetation in the row produced seed yields equal to burning. The effects of burning and mechanical thinning appeared to be additive. Increasing the rate of nitrogen was not effective in maintaining seed production as the stands became older.
