Effects of utilization systems, sowing methods and type of grasses on pasture production of centro and hamata mixed with ruzi and para on a small dairy farm. 3. Chemical composition

Different grass-legume combinations of Centrosema pubescens, Stylosanthes hamata, Brachiaria mutica and B. ruziziensis were grown in a field trial in which the species were either sown together or in alternate grass and legume strips, and utilized by cutting or grazing. Herbage quality (CP, P, K, NDF and ADF contents) was little affected by pasture management, but varied between species. The legumes had higher CP, and lower K and NDF, contents than the grasses.
