Abstract/Contents:"A two-year field study at Mead, Nebraska, USA, Showed that subsequent tillering was generally increased when 33, 67, and 100% of the elongates tillers were removed in Lincoln smooth bromegrass (Bromus inermis Leyss.). Apical dominance was apparently reduced when elongated tillers were removed and as a consequence new tillers elongated. If irrigated smooth bromegrass is grazed in the spring so about 67% or more of the elongated tillers are removed and subsequent tillering will be increased. By removing only 67% or slightly more of the tillers, remaining leaf area could supply carbohydrates to the small developing tillers."
