The bermudagrass variety test has been clipped four times thus far during the 1998 growing season. An abundant accumulation of soil profile moisture during the winter and early spring was apparently sufficient to sustain the grasses through the early part of the growing season.
With 1.2 million head of cattle utilizing forages within a 100-mile radius of Ardmore, OK, there is significant potential to increase the economic returns from these forages by improving the quantity and quality of existing forages, learning how to more efficiently utilize forages, scrutinizing the cost of production of each forage enterprise, and developing alternative forage systems.

Excess rainfall this summer may have caused a few problems with hay harvest, but there has not been too much complaining. The wet summer has provided excellent soil moisture conditions for both warm-season and cool-season forage production this fall.
An update on the Foundation's bermudagrass and cool-season perennial grass evaluations.
Bermudagrass is widely adapted and serves as the primary forage base for many livestock producers in southern Oklahoma and north Texas. Evaluation of its varieties has been an integral part of the Noble Research Institute's forage testing program since 1967.
