FORAGE MATURITY MATRIX and Maturity Index Rating System
In an effort to standardize maturity classifications, DLF proposes a Northern American Forage Maturity Matrix for forage grasses. This is an adaptation of the maturity classification system utilized by European forage companies. The Maturity Index has been designed to accommodate the broader range of species and maturities utilized in the North American forage industry.
