  • Mitchem, M.S.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1995)
    The 1994 growing season was characterized by near norm al rainfall and temperatures. Both whole-plant DM and grain yields were excellent for all hybrid s. The middle-season Pioneer 947 hybrid had the highest grain ...
  • Sonon, R.N.; Dalke, B.S.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bonilla, D.R.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Rainfall was much above and temperature much below normal during the 1992 growing season. Both whole-plant dry matter (DM) and grain yields were excellent for all 11 hybrids. The two short, mid-maturing, forage sorghums ...
  • Dikeman, Michael E. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2013)
    The primary purpose of producing beef cattle is to convert grass, forages, and various byproducts, plus human-edible protein and energy, into highly nutritious and tasty beef. To accomplish this, (1) cattle enterprises ...
  • Bolsen, K.; Ilg, H.; Smith, R.; Hoover, J.; Axe, D. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Cattle fed drought-stressed corn silage gained about 10% slower but were just as efficient as cattle fed irrigated corn silage. Because the irrigated corn out yielded the drought corn (17.4 VS. 8.2 tons per acre), the ...
  • Ritter, B.; Bauernfeind, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    A 2-year-old, irriagated alfalfa field was left untreated or treated with ¼ lb, ½ lb, or 1 lb of Furadan® per acre on April 5, 1986. Alfalfa weevil populations were determined 2,9,16 and 23 days post-spraying. Forage samples ...
  • Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Walter, T.; Kirch, B. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Results from two trials indicate that grain sorghums can produce high, whole-crop dry matter yields in a short time. Although grain sorghum whole-crop silage may yield less tonnage than forage sorghum, its higher crude ...
  • Hamma, S.; Kirch, B.; Downey, B.; White, J.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1987)
    In the last 2 years, three trials were conducted to determine the influence of hybrid and stage of maturity at harvest on silage yield, composition, and nutritive value for 15 forage and nine grain sorghum hybrids. ...
  • Dickerson, J.; Bolsen, K.; Hamma, S.; Hoover, J. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    Results from three trials showed the diversity among forage sorghum hybrids for both agronomic and nutritive characteristics. Later maturing and nonheading hybrids produced silages with low dry matter (DM) contents, low ...
  • Goldy, G.; Lenssen, Andrew William; Walters, T.; Riley, Jack G.; Posler, Gerry L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1986)
    There were no significant differences in in vitro digestibility between wheat varieties, but there was a trend for differences due to locations. Location differences were much wider for test weight, 1000 kernel weight, ...
  • Dickerson, J.; Smith, R.; Bolsen, K.; Walter, T. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1985)
    Thirteen sorghum hybrids chosen to represent a range of sorghum types were evaluated in two separate trials. Each was harvested at three stages of grain development: milk to early-dough, late-dough, and hard-grain. Among ...
  • Sonon, R.N.; Dalke, B.S.; Suazo, R.; Pfaff, L.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1992)
    Twenty corn hybrids were grown under irrigation and harvested at 90 % of the kernel milk line. Hybrid had a significant effect on plant height, whole-plant dry matter (DM) and DM yield, grain yield, stover yield, and ...
  • Sonon, R.N.; Dalke, B.S.; Holthaus, D.L.; Bonilla, D.R.; Pfaff, L.; Boyer, John E.; Brent, B.E.; Bolsen, K.K.; Young, Matthew A. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    In 1992, 24 corn hybrids were grown under both irrigated and dryland conditions and were harvested at 90% of the kernel milk line. Growing condition and hybrid significantly affected plant height and the number of days ...
  • Posler, Gerry L.; Bolsen, K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1977)
    The attempt to increase total forage TDN per acre by double-cropping was only moderately successful in 1975 and 1976. Limiting factors were relatively poor stands and extremely dry summer growing seasons.
  • Crow, B.A.; Dikeman, Michael E.; Ray, A.N.; Houser, Terry A.; Grobbel, J.P.; Hollis, Larry C.; Phebus, Randall K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2010)
    Meat tenderness is the most important palatability attribute affecting consumers’ overall eating experience. Injection enhancement and blade tenderization have long been used to improve this important trait. Injection ...
  • Blasi, Dale A.; Fjell, Dale L.; Shroyer, James P.; Kuhl, G.L.; Heer, William F. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1991)
    Six, summer annual forages and three forage sorghums were evaluated for forage yield and quality under south central Kansas dryland conditions. The sudans and forage sorghums produced similar amounts of dry matter ...
  • Heer, William F.; Blasi, Dale A.; Fjell, Dale L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1993)
    Six summer annuals and three forage sorghums were evaluated for forage yield and quality under south central Kansas dryland conditions. When cut in the late boot to early heading stage, all forage types (millet, ...
  • Vanderlip, R. L.; Schneider, L.R.; Bolsen, K.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station, 1974)
    Last year in Kansas approximately 3.8 million acres produced 243 million bushels of grain sorghum plus a large amount of forage left in the field as a potential source of feed for livestock. The objective of this report ...
  • Kuhl, G.L.; Shroyes, J.P.; Hartman, Paul D.; Fjell, Dale L. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1990)
    Nine summer annual forages were studied to evaluate yield and nutritional quality differences resulting from forage type and cultivar when cut at two stages of maturity. Substantial dry matter yield and quality differences ...
  • Azimi, S.; Bolsen, K.; Laytimi, A.; Esmail, S.H.M.; Hoover, J.; Ye, Q.K. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1988)
    Three trials were conducted to compare silage and hay yields and feeding values of winter cereal foraged harvested in the boot and dough stages of maturity. Included were triticale; common rye; Kanby barley; and Centurk, ...
