Description: Kentucky 31 and Kenwell tall fescue, Pensacola bahia, and Brunswick grasses yielded nea,rly three times more forage under an established pine stand than native grasses 7 years after seeding. Introducing exotic grasses did not significantly increase total grass production but did enhance range quality since the cool-season grasses are green during winter and are higher in crude protein, ether extract, phosphorus, and Vitamin A than the warm-season grasses. Prescribed burning was neither detrimental nor beneficial to the exotic grass yields.
Keywords: introduced grasses, perennial, forage yields, multiple-use, forest range, cool- and warm-season grasses
