Abstract

A threefold increase in grazing capacity was achieved in a five-year range improvement program involving the seeding of adapted clovers, phosphorus fertilization, and grazing management on over 500 acres. Grazing records and quadrat harvests demonstrate the marked success of the improvement methods.
