Abstract
Influence of Frequency and Intensity of Clipping on Forage Yield, Crude Protein Content and Digestibility of Six Kenyan Range Grasses. (December 1984) Benson Mulwa Woie, B.S., Texas A&M University; M.S., New Mexico State University Chairman of Advisory Committee: Dr. Joseph L. Schuster iii This investigation was conducted at two experimental sites on the National Range Research Station, Kiboko, to evaluate forage yield, leaf-to-stem ratio, crown area, tiller number. regrowth height, forage digestibility, and crude protein content of six native range grasses following defoliation at three frequencies (3. 6, and 9 weeks) with three cutting heights to leave 5-cm, lO-cm, and l5-cm stubble heights.
