AbstractOn a range in central Louisiana, maximum production of carpetgrass and total herbage was obtained by harvesting once or twice per season. Carpetgrass and forbs increased in percent botanical composition with frequent harvests, while bluestems and other grasses increased with infrequent harvests. Site did not significantly affect herbage production.
