Verano stylo seed production


, : Verano stylo seed production. Queensland Agricultural Journal 111(1): 59-63

Stylosanthes hamata Verano is presently Australia's most abundant tropical pasture legume, with total annual production of about 100 t. Soil and climatic requirements, site selection, seed preparation, crop establishment, harvesting, seed drying and cleaning are described. Weeds are routinely controlled by pre-em. application of trifluralin; in its absence Eleusine indica and Digitaria spp. interfered with crop growth and Themeda quadrivalvis contaminated the final product.
