Abstract

Grazing small grains at early stages of growth is a common practice throughout much of the United States. In the South grazing of small grains is a means of providing both high quality forage and grain from the same plantings. Mechanical clipping has been practiced in some areas for its secondary effect of reduced lodging by decreasing the plant height. Although clipping oats in Iowa is not common, there is interest in the practice as a possible means of reducing lodging.
