Studies at 3 different locations in Colorado at altitudes of 6200, 770, and 9700 feet showed a great potential for increasing forage and nutrient production when N was supplied by legumes or as fertilizers. Each of the 6 grasses used was highly productive at one or more locations. Greatest production was observed with late-cut harvest at high altitude but early-cut harvest was superior for production at low altitude.Please view the pdf by using the Full Text (PDF) link under 'View' to the left.
