Abstract

Some Notes on the Nutritional Value of Sudan Grass at the Bramley Research Station

Most farmers are aware that fodder crops deteriorate in quality as the plants mature. It is equally well known that, if crops are allowed to run to head, a much greater bulk of material is obtained. The farmer, therefore, has to choose between quality and quantity. As quantity is a much more obvious factor and bulk seems to mean so much in terms of pounds, shillings and pence, there is a tendency to cut or graze crops too late rather than at the best time.
