Project description:
The project deals with the biomass accumulation and quality of the intergeneric hybrid Felina (Festuca arundinacea x Lolium multiflorum), Dactylis glomerata a Arrhenatherum elatius at the end of the vegetation period in dependence on summer use. From October to December in an interval of 3 weeks, leaf extension rate, leaf appearance rate and leaf senescence rate will be evaluated. At the beginning of October, November and December, biomass for chemical analysis will be sampled. Content of organic matter (Weenden analysis), nitrogen matter, ash, NDF and ADF will be determined in the samples. Futhermore, through an analysis of ergosterol, the level of mildew infection will be estimated. In connection with the mildew infection of mycotoxins zearalenon and aflatoxin will be determined in the biomass. The biomass accumulation and biomass quality at the end of the vegetation period and in the winter is prerequisite for winter pasture.
