• Longleaf Unicola and Spike Uniola Require Shade

      Wolters, G. L. (Society for Range Management, 1974-01-01)
      Three years after establishment, longleaf uniola and spike uniola plants under 92% shade were larger, more numerous, and more vigorous than those receiving more sunlight. Herbage production was 10 times greater in 92% shade than in full sunlight. Protein, phosphorus, calcium, and ash content of the herbage increased as shade deepened, while crude fiber and N.F.E. content decreased.
