• Responses of Semidesert Grasses to Seasonal Rest

      Martin, S. C. (Society for Range Management, 1973-05-01)
      Perennial grasses on semidesert range in southern Arizona increased more in 8 years under spring-summer (March-October) rest 2 years out of 3 than under continuous yearlong grazing or any of 13 other rest schedules. A three-pasture grazing system that provides spring-summer rest 2 years in 3 is being tested on the Santa Rita Experimental Range.
