Defoliation – A High Risk Way To Increase Yield. Defoliation is a method to increase crop yield used by experienced growers. The idea is to help shape the plant with selective pruning. This focuses the energy of the plant on the best-placed buds. Warning: this is not a good idea for beginners. You have to know what you are doing. duration grazing systems attempt to achieve this balance through control of frequency and intensity of defoliation events. A substan- tial body of information exists concerning the individual effects of frequency or intensity of defoliation on forage yield (Humphreys , Smetham ).
The Biology and Utilization of Grasses reviews current knowledge about grass biology, and it highlights the important role of grasses in human existence. It discusses many fundamental aspects of grass biology, including evolution and genetics, morphology, physiology, and ecology, with emphasis on the relationship of these basic concepts to the Book Edition: 1. Grazing animals need to be managed in order to accommodate desired results in terms of animal, plant, land and economic responses. Grazing Management, 2nd Edition integrates principles and management techniques that apply to all grazing lands and to all grazing : Hardcover.

The biology of defoliation by grazing and the application of biologically effective defoliation to grassland ecosystems. Grass Tiller Development Grass tillers consist of shoots and roots. The shoot is the stem and leaves, and comprises repeated structural units called phytomers (BeardDahl.
from defoliation, and requires an understanding of the symbiotic relationship among rhizosphere organisms, grass plants, and large grazing herbivores.
This report is a compilation of scientific knowledge about the biology of defoliation by grazing and the application of biologically effective defoliation to grassland ecosystems. The Biology and Utilization of Grasses reviews current knowledge about grass biology, and it highlights the important role of grasses in human existence.
It discusses many fundamental aspects of grass biology, including evolution and genetics, morphology, physiology, and ecology, with emphasis on the relationship of these basic concepts to the. Defoliation is to tactically remove leaves from growing cannabis plants to localize resin production and improve yields at harvest.
Topping or tipping, mainlining and lollipopping, schwazzing and schwazzing again are some well known uses for defoliation. Even tidying yellow or damaged leaves is a form of defoliation. WHY DEFOLIATION.
When a plant undergoes widespread and unnatural loss of its leaves it is described as defoliation. This is a plant disease and condition which is usually harmful to the plant’s health. Various reasons can trigger defoliation and the causes range from grazing animals, insect infestation, high winds, excess heat, drought, frost, chemicals, and.
Defoliation is the premature removal of grass parts, usually leaves, by cutting or grazing. Cutting grass by mowing is usually a clean, uniform cut. Grazing animals are selective and do not defoliate plants uniformly or evenly. Each species of livestock interacts differently within the plant-animal-soil continuum because of the different mouth structures (tongue, teeth, lips.

Read on to learn what causes defoliation and the effects of defoliation in the garden. What Causes Defoliation.
Defoliation is defined as a widespread loss of leaves or stripping of leaves on a plant. There are many things that can cause this, such as grazing animals like deer or rabbits, insect infestation, disease or chemical run off from.
Defoliation is “an unseasonable reduction in the foliage cover of a plant due to attacks by insects or fungal disease, or as a result of other factors such as drought, storms, or chemicals in. 39 Plant responses to defoliation and relationships with pasture persistence G.R.

Defoliation by grazing animals prevents senescence of plant tissue, removes N in animal products, changes the N pathway from internal plant recycling or leaf fall to return as feces and urine, increases light penetration into the canopy and, through selective grazing, may alter botanical composition by promoting one species over another.
The defoliation resistance mechanisms help grass tillers withstand and recover from partial defoliation by grazing. These mechanisms are: herbivore-induced compensatory physiological processes, stimulation of vegetative reproduction of secondary tillers from axillary buds, and stimulation of rhizosphere organisms activity and the increased.
The diversity of responses of individual grasses to defoliation created a controversy about 15 years ago, which still needs clarification.
We quantitatively assessed the evidence of defoliation effects on individual grass growth, addressing two main questions: 1) what is the average and variability of the effect of defoliation on plant growth.
and 2) what are the associated conditions Cited by: Defoliation Patterns and Herbage Intake on Pastures. Article (PDF Available) January Defoliation in set-stocked grazing systems. Grass and. Forage Scie 73– Defoliation: The process of separation of ripened leaves from a branch or stem, this type of falling or shedding of the leaves is commonly known as are many reasons why leaves may be lost, the possible causes include chemicals, pests, diseases, environment and (for deciduous trees and shrubs) autumn and also, to destroy narcotic-producing plants as a tactic against illegal.
We, therefore, established a common garden experiment to study plant responses to defoliation, dung addition, moss cover, and the soil legacy of reindeer grazing. We used an arctic tundra grazed by reindeer as our study system, and Festuca ovina, a common grazing‐tolerant grass species as the model : Hélène Barthelemy, Ellen Dorrepaal, Johan Olofsson.
Defoliate definition is - to deprive of leaves especially prematurely. How to use defoliate in a sentence. Plant-herbivore relationships have been the subject of numerous earlier studies. These studies have shown that plants and swards have the capacity to adapt their structure (plasticity in size, number and spatial orientation of shoot organs), productivity and persistency, to the defoliation characteristics that result from grazing or cutting management strategies [1,2,3].Cited by: Defoliation is the use of synthetic chemicals to enhance leaf removal and allow the harvesting of a cotton crop in a timely manner.
It’s a balancing act. Your objective is to enhance the natural physiological process of creating the abscission zone, the area that separates the. ‘Unlike Japanese larch and white pine, defoliated bear oak seedlings showed very little response to partial defoliation.’ ‘The effects of defoliation depend in part on the timing of defoliation.’ ‘We evaluated the costs of leaf height and defoliation in this plant by conducting a replicated field experiment in a forested landscape.’.
