Abstract/Contents:Profiles smooth bromegrass, stating that it "is a very productive, high quality grass throughout spring, but growth begins to slow and quality declines in the summer months." Explains that "researchers at UNL [University of Nebraska - Lincoln] have been exploring methods of diversifying smooth bromegrass pastures to provide more nutritious, continuous supply of forage through the summer. Interseeding a legume into cool-season grass pasture is one option to help reduce the problems of 'summer slump' by extending the grazing season and making a higher quality forage available to livestock, especially in July and August." Concludes that "unfortunately, it is difficult to plant and establish legumes in existing smooth bromegrass pasture. Birdsfoot trefoil is especially slow to develop as a seedling."
