Abstract/Contents:Timothy was cut at ht. of 0, 10 or 20 cm above ground level and carbohydrate metabolism in the haplocorm investigated. Av. haplocorm fresh wt. varied with cutting ht. With cutting to 0 or 10 but not to 20 cm, 2 peaks of hydrolysing activity appeared in haplocorms with each peak being higher and occurring earlier with cutting to 0 cm than with cutting to 10 cm. Fructosan hydrolysing activity was highest 20 days after cutting in all treatments and increased with increased cutting ht. Fructosan content decreased rapidly with cutting to 0 cm and gradually with cutting to 10 cm while it increased with cutting to 20 cm showing an inverse relationship to fructosan hydrolysing activity.
