The objectives of the study were to perform the fodder accumulation curves and morphological components and light
interception to determine the optimal moment of cutting for green fodder of three lines and one wheat variety (Triticum sp.). Harvests were performed at intervals of 7 d, 43 days after sowing (DAS). In each harvest the average height of 20 plants was recorded, the intercepted radiation (IR), dry matter accumulation, morphological composition, and leaf area index (LAI). The sampling unit was a square of 0.45 m2.

The study was carried out in Montecillo, Texcoco, Estado de México, from September 2014 to September 2015. The objective was to estimate the fodder potential of Lotus corniculatus L., with different management strategies, depending on the percentage of light intercepted (LI) and a fixed cut (FC) defined seasonally. The treatments were established in a random block design, with three repetitions. Between treatments, no differences were present in the annual accumulation of fodder, or in the different seasons, except for fall, when the FC yielded 43 % less than the 100 % LI (3,386 vs 5,922 kg MS ha¿1 ). In the botanical and morphological composition, between treatments, only the stem presented differences in annual accumulation.
