Abstract

Bowley, S. R. and Hancock, D. 2011. DIVIDEND VL orchardgrass. Can. J. Plant Sci. 91: 793-795. DIVIDEND VL is a late-maturing orchardgrass (Dactylis glomerata L.) cultivar for silage and hay production in mixtures with alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) in eastern Canada. The population was developed at the University of Guelph, Guelph, ON. DIVIDEND VL matured at a slower rate when grown in pure stand and in binary mixtures with alfalfa compared with the cultivars OKAY and Rapido. When harvested at the same date, DIVIDEND VL averaged 7% lower in biomass yield compared with OKAY, but the herbage was less advanced in its maturity.
