AbstractLate spring burning on May 1 was less detrimental than burning in fall or in early or mid-spring. Late spring burning, however, reduced infiltration rate, soil moisture, and forage yield, as compared with unburned range. Advantages of late spring burning over not burning were an increase in big bluestem, control of Kentucky bluegrass and other less desirable plants, and more rapid beef gains.
