Dual-purpose cereals: can the relative influences of management and environment on crop recovery and grain yield be dissected?

Harrison, Matthew; Evans, John; Dove, Hugh; Moore, Andrew D


Growing cereal crops for the dual-purposes (DP) of livestock forage during the early vegetative stages and harvesting grain at maturity has been practised for decades. It follows that scientific experiments using DP crops are nearly as old. A survey of more than 270 DP crop experiments revealed that the average effect of crop defoliation on grain yield (GY) was -7±25% (range -35 to 75%). In light of these results, the first purpose of this review was to assess how alternative crop and grazing...[Show more]
