Performance of tropical pasture legumes grown in south-western islands of Japan. II. Dry matter production, digestible dry matter yields and nitrogen yields of Siratro and Rhodes grass grown in pure and mixed stands



Performance of tropical pasture legumes grown in south-western islands of Japan. II. Dry matter production, digestible dry matter yields and nitrogen yields of Siratro and Rhodes grass grown in pure and mixed stands



Journal of Japanese Society of Grassland Science 29(1): 44-54



Macroptilium atropurpureum Siratro and Rhodes grass were grown in pure stands or in mixtures at 4 N fertilizer levels. In vitro DM digestibility was higher in M. atropurpureum than Rhodes grass and was decreased in both spp. during periods of high temp. and low precipitation. Digestible DM yields were 6.6-7.9 t/ha in the legume and 5.5-6.7 t/ha in mixed stands, which was equivalent to the yield of Rhodes grass given 240-340 kg N/ha in pure stands.
