Title: Exotic Grass Yields Under Southern Pines

Author: Pearson, H.A.;

Date: 1975

Source: Res. Note SO-201. New Orleans, LA: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Southern Forest Experiment Station. 3 p.

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

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
