AbstractDuring a wet year tobosa produced more herbage on burned plots than on unburned plots at five locations. Ash from the burns had a slight fertilizing effect, but removal of litter stimulated production more than any other factor. Based on this data, fire can be used as a tool to control mesquite without harming tobosa.
