Total Nonstructural Carbohydrate Concentrations in the Herbage of Several Legumes and Grasses at First Flower1
- Dale Smith2
Herbage of several forage legumes and grasses was harvested at first flower (beginning of anthesis in grasses) and analyzed for percentage of total nonstructural carbohydrates (TNC) during 3 years. No significant difference was found among species for the 3-year averages. However, red dover (Trifolium pratense L.), among the legumes, and timothy (Phleum pratense L.), among the grasses, were consistently high in TNC percentage during all 3 years.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
