The influence of grazing management on the competitiveness, persistence and productivity of chicory (Cichorium intybus L.)


, : The influence of grazing management on the competitiveness, persistence and productivity of chicory (Cichorium intybus L.). Australian Journal of Experimental Agriculture 43(2): 127-133

Chicory is a highly productive and nutritious forage that is sensitive to grazing. A challenge for grazing management is to prevent pasture decline associated with the replacement of productive species by undesirable weedy species. The competitive ability, persistence and productivity of chicory were investigated under a gradient of grazing management practices ranging from continuous to short grazing-long rest treatments by merino wethers in New South Wales, Australia.
