Abstract/Contents:"Warm-season grasses contribute substantially to herbage supply during summer in cool?temperate environments, when the productivity of cool?season grasses declines. Herbage digestibility as well as mineral concentration may limit the amount of essential nutrients available to meet grazing animal requirements. A field study was conducted to determine the productivity and quality of a new selection of bermudagrass [Cynodon dactylon (L) Pers.], RSl, which is capable of growth and persistence in areas where other cultivars of bermudagrass are likely to winterkill. Concentrations and uptake of mineral nutrients in RSl bermudagrass were determined in response to N levels (0, 120, 240, and 360 kg N/ha) and delayed initial harvest (advancing maturity) at 2, 4, and 6 weeks after active growth began. Concentrations of P, Ca, K, Mg, and S in early season growth generally declined with advancing maturity. Concentrations of elements showed mixed response to N levels, and generally were not affected by treatments late in the growing season. Early in the growing season, mineral uptakes increased with advancing maturity. Increasing N levels early and late in the growing season enhanced mineral uptake. Mineral ratios, such as N:S and K (Ca + Mg), were within critical limits for adequate animal nutrition, but the Ca:P ratio was less than 2:1 and could contribute to known mineral?related disorders in male sheep. Herbage mineral concentrations of RSl generally met or exceeded mineral nutrient requirements for sheep and cattle in growing or lactating physiological states."
