Forage yields of nonirrigated oat mixtures and both irrigated and nonirrigated rye mixtures were increased by split applications of N compared to applying all the N at planting time. Irrigated oats did not respond to split N applications. Split applications of N increased late season forage production with little effect on fall production when compared with applying all the N at planting. Rye appears to be more responsive to split N applications than oats. Forage yields of oat and rye mixtures were increased by increasing N rates and by irrigation.
