Two experiments were conducted using clones and seedling plants of switchgrass, Panicum virgatum L.; big bluestem, Andropogon furcatus Muhl.; buffalo grass, Buchloe dactyloides (Nutt.) engelm.; side-oats grama, Bouteloua curtipendula (Michx.) Torr.; and blue grama, Bouteloua gracilis (H.B.K.) Lag. Studies were conducted to determine the effect of several environmental factors on the production of inflorescences. These grasses responded differently, with regard to vegetative growth and inflorescence production, when subjected to various temperature and photo-period treatments.
