The objective of this study was to define the input height to grazing and evaluate forage production of Italian ryegrass (Lolium multiflorum Lam.) cv. Barjumbo and cv. Common associated or not with oat black forage (Avena strigosa Schreb) cv. IAPAR 61, submitted to two post-grazing. Treatments consisted of a 4x2 factorial design, totaling eight treatments with three replications, being evaluated common and Barjumbo ryegrass, single and mixed with black oat in two highs of post-grazing residue:

Single Common ryegrass and combined with black oat obtained higher production than Barjumbo cultivate, and greater accumulation rate only when intercropped with black oat. Leaf blades production did not differ among cultivars. Stems production was low to Barjumbo cultivar. Black oat production was higher when associated with Barjumbo. Input height to Italian ryegrass cultivars with 95% light interception was 26.86 cm to Barjumbo and 28.75 cm to common cultivar, and when combined with black oat 34.01 cm and 32.48 cm, respectively.
