AbstractThe impact of standing dead material upon the crown temperature, yield, and crude protein concentration of Whitmar wheatgrass was studied. During the day standing dead material significantly lowered temperature in the crown but influenced temperatures during the night only slightly. Herbage yield of new growth was greater and its crude protein concentration lower on plots with than without standing dead material.
