Vegetation response to six mowing treatments in a central New York old-field meadow, 1999-2007
Wesley, Robert; Bittner, Todd
Six mowing treatments produced some notable differences in vegetation in nine years. Summer vs. Fall mowing, mowing every year, every other year or every third year were the six treatments. Summer mowing every year produced a more grassy meadow; the other treatments produced a more goldenrod-dominated meadow.
