Caption: Figure 1--Pastures of healthy Festuca arundinacea and Dactylis glomerata (A and C, respectively) and with attack from Cyclocephala flavipennis (B and D, respectively).
2012) showed that the dry biomass productions of the first and second years were not influenced by the biochar application, while dactylis glomerata which was grown in the third year got the signifiant increasing of crop height and total dry biomass, especially at the higher application rate of 50 t ha-1.
The most common and widespread grasses in this habitat were Dactylis glomerata, Digitaria ciliaris, Eleusine indica, Eragrostis pectinacea, Festuca subverticillata, Poa annua, P.
Some of the best results came from planting red or white clover in with traditional pasture plants such as rye grass like lolium perenne or the dactylis glomerata, commonly known as cock's-foot or orchard grass.

The Fig 4 shows the growth of different species of perennial grasses, with significant development lolium perenne, compared canary and dactylis that have the lowest development.
i) The Kis-Gaja Ridge site is located in a shallow depression (dolina) of a karstic plateau with semi-humid tall grasses (Arrhenaterum elatius, Dactylis polygama, Brachypodium pinnatum) rich in different Asteraceae (Cirsium arvense, Centaurea spp.
The highest number of shoots is formed by buds of tillering zone in species, such as Dactylis glomerata, etc.
Among the 11 crops treated here are perennial ryegrass, tall fescue, Dactylis and Phleum, warm-season grasses, alfalfa, and red and white clover.
Cruz and Lemaire (1986) showed that experiments undertaken in France with dactylis (Dactylis glomerata) intercropped with alfalfa (Medicago sativa) failed to demonstrate a direct pathway of N from the leguminous plant towards the other through biological fixation; moreover, alfalfa competes with the grass for inorganic N in the soil.
