AbstractStored carbohydrates of sand reedgrass increased from a low in late May and early June to a maximum in late September and early October. Starch was the major stored carbohydrate. The concentration of starch in the roots decreased slightly with increased grazing intensity. The results of this study combined with information on the morphological development, extent of root system, and other physiological aspects of sand reedgrass can be used in developing grazing management systems for sand reedgrass.
