Yield, moisture, and protein content of selected forage grasses in Malaysia



Yield, moisture, and protein content of selected forage grasses in Malaysia



Research Publication, College of Agriculture, Malaya (5, Animal Science Series 2): 20



In trials in Nov. 1970-Apr. '71, (a) Para grass, (b) Guinea grass, (c) Napier grass and (d) star grass (Cynodon plectostachyus) were given N, P and K each at 60 lb/ac and were cut after 3 or 6 weeks of regrowth. Moisture content at both stages was highest in (c) and lowest in (b) and (d). At the 3-week regrowth stage, CP contents of fresh herbage were: (d) 4.5%, (a) and (b) 3.1%, and (c) 2.5%; the values on a DM basis were: (d) 19.0%, (c) 17.3%, (a) 14.8% and (b) 12.5%.
