A logistic equation was used to relate forage yield to applied N for bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers.] and bahiagrass [Paspalum notatum Flugge]. It was shown that the equation could be factored into a triple product-one term each for water availability, harvest interval and applied N. The equation provides high correlation (R ≥ 0.98) between yield and applied N for all levels of water availability and harvest interval. Appropriate statistical procedures for nonlinear regression were utilized in the analysis. These results are useful for estimating effects of management factors on forage production.
