Physiological responses of forage grasses to water deficit are not well documented, but may be important in determining drought resistance. The objective of this study was to determine the response of osmotic potential, leaf proline concentration, and cell wall elasticity to water deficit for the C 4 (warm-season) grasses 'Nebraska 54' indiangrass [Sorghastrum nutans (L.) Nash], 'Pathfinder' switchgrass (Panicum virgatum L.), and 'Pawnee' big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii Vitman), and the C 3 (cool-season) grasses, 'Ioreed' reed canarygrass (Phalaris arundinacea L.), and 'Lincoln' smooth bromegrass (Bromus inermis Leyss.). Other measurements included leaf water potential, soil water content, and osmotic adjustment [...]
