• Forage Moisture Variations on Mountain Summer Range

      Sharif, C. M.; West, N. E. (Society for Range Management, 1968-07-01)
      Diurnal and seasonal differences, as well as site features of slope aspect and shading, were found to be significant variables related to forage moisture content on a mountain summer range in northern Utah. These variations, if ignored in range analysis, can have considerable practical consequence. Therefore, improvements on wet to dry-weight conversion factors have been suggested.
