Abstract/Contents:"An experiment was conducted to measure the vertical distribution of LAI, sheath material and light in canopies of two contrasting perennial ryegrass varieties, S23 and Ba6280. In addition, the time course of DM production and LAI accumulation were measured over various periods of regrowth after defoliation. Considerable differences existed between these two varieties in canopy structure, light interception, LAI and crop growth-rate over various periods of regrowth. The results offer explanations for intervarietal differences in productivity and differential responses to various cutting frequencies. A description is given of a technique for measuring the vertical distribution of herbage in a grass canopy."
