Abstract

An objective of this research was to study the effects of three N fertilizers, including a slowly available N source, on the growth of a cool-season grass. The effect of cutting systems on the productivity of this grass was also studied to better evaluate the effect of N treatments. Factors examined were: dry matter produced, percent crude protein of the forage, forage mineral composition, and plant nitrogen uptake. Cool-season grass production is influenced by many factors; among these are the stage of growth at harvest and the amount and source of nitrogen (n) fertilizer applied. These factors will be discussed in terms of their effect on forage quantity in the following review.
