In tufted grasses, the N nutrition affects the expression of basic morphogenetic variables at the tiller level in a number of ways, increasing the LER and tillering rate and having a slight effect on the LAR; the effect of N nutrition on leaf tissue production on strictly stoloniferous species appears to be very dependent on the response of stolon internode elongation (CRUZ & BOVAL, 2000).
