AbstractFrequent removal of herbage from hardinggrass plants during the most active period of growth resulted in reduced yields and an increase in plant death. Intensive clipping also appeared to reduce the concentration of carbohydrate reserves in stem bases. Total sugar percent was higher and fructosan percent was lower in intensively clipped plants than in plants clipped only at maturity.
