  • Animal and pasture productivity of ‘coastal’ and ‘tifton 44’ bermudagrass at three nitrogen rates and associated soil nitrogen status

    Coastal’ and ‘Tifton 44’ (T44) bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers.] are well adapted across the lower southern United States, but the grazing response of (T44) to N application in the Piedmont of the upper South warrants further evaluation. This 3-yr experiment compared animal and pasture productivity of Coastal and T44 with three annual N rates of 101, 202, and 303 kg of N ha–1 on a Cecil ...

  • Capabilities of four novel warm-season legumes in the southern great plains: Grain production and quality
