Effect of sowing density and spacing on seed production in Stylosanthes guianensis



Effect of sowing density and spacing on seed production in Stylosanthes guianensis



Pastos y Forrajes 17(3): 207-215



In field trials on red ferrallitic soil in Matanzas, Cuba in 1987-88, S. guianensis was sown in rows 50, 75 or 100 cm apart at rates of 0.5, 1.0 or 1.5 kg seed/ha. Seed production in Dec. ranged from 33 to 86 kg/ha and from 29 to 119 kg/ha in 1st and 2nd years, respectively; the highest yield each year was given by sowing 1.0 kg/ha of seed in rows 100 cm apart.
