Effect of sowing rate and spacing on the establishment of Stylosanthes guianensis cv. Cook

Effect of sowing rate and spacing on the establishment of Stylosanthes guianensis cv. Cook

Pastos y Forrajes 15(2): 116-122

In field trials in 1989-90, on a red hydrated ferrallitic soil in Matanzas, Cuba, S. guianensis Cook was sown in Sep. 1989 at 4 rates ranging from 1.0 to 2.5 kg seed/ha either broadcast or in rows 25, 50 or 75 cm apart. Plots were cut 180 and 255 d after sowing. For the first 120 d the highest sowing rate gave a significantly higher population density and ground cover and lower weed invasion than in other plots.
