A study carried out in Dactylis glomerata indicated a decrease in LAR associated with an increase in sheath lenght (DURU & DUCROCQ, 2000), and a similar response was found in this experiment, as with the decrease in LER and increase in ALSP, the leaves had more time to grow, which led to a reduction in LAR.
