Table: Data of biomass in grassland convert value to kg ha-1 From the TABLE, it shows that root or below-ground biomass in grassland is greater than biomass of above-ground of litter and standing live which is in total on 32.89 per cent if compare to roots biomass about 67.11 per cent.

Graph: Graph show the differentiation on biomass distribution in grassland according to its components From the graph, it show clearly the distinct differentiation of above-ground and below-ground biomass.
