Synopsis

Data from 6 growing seasons show the following general comparisons: less gains from tall fescue-clover than from other mixtures; less daily gains from grasses alone fertilized with N than from Ladino mixture with no N; less gains from tall fescue alone with N and in Ladino mixture than from orchardgrass in these same treatments; lowest carrying capacity and lowest live weight gains per acre from orchardgrass - lespedeza -white clover; higher gains per acre from orchardgrass and tall fescue fertilized with N than from the same grasses in Ladino mixture with no N; highest carrying capacity from tall fescue fertilized with N.
