AbstractClipping little bluestem, big bluestem, and indiangrass for 3 successive years at the seed-ripened stage or later increased yields and spring-initiated tillering of plants in a prairie-like glade grassland in the Missouri Ozarks. Clipping at any time during the summer reduced yields, but clipping between floral initiation and anthesis was the most damaging to plants.
