Total Nonstructural Carbohydrate Concentrations in the Herbage of Several Legumes and Grasses at First Flower1

  1. 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.
