AbstractSideoats grama is a key species for indicating forage use on the Rolling Plains of Texas. A regression equation for field determination of percent utilization of sideoats grama was developed and tested. The method developed, based on measurements of total height and stubble height, is more rapid and accurate than other methods commonly used by technicians.
