Effect of grazing interval on yield, quality and persistence of swazigrass (Digitaria swazilandensis Stent) in southern Ghana



Effect of grazing interval on yield, quality and persistence of swazigrass (Digitaria swazilandensis Stent) in southern Ghana



Proceedings of the XVI International Grassland Congress, 4-11 October 1989, Nice, France: 1015-1016



D. swazilandensis compares favourably in DM production and forage quality to most introduced and native species in S. Ghana under cutting management. The effect of grazing intervals of 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 weeks on its forage production, quality and persistence was investigated in comparison with D. decumbens in 1981-82 using mob-grazing with yearling steers. Mean DM production of D. decumbens was higher (3.9 t/ha) than in D. swazilandensis (3.6 t/ha) in the 1st year only. The 2-year av.
