AbstractField experience in the Southwest has demonstrated the suitability of the line interception method for combining the measurement of utilization with plant density and composition estimates. It includes the advantages of actual measurement and random sampling. Moreover, the data obtained lend themselves readily to statistical analysis. The method operates equally well in sampling both large and small pastures.
