Effect of phenological stage on natural nodulation, nutrient and crude protein contents of Clitoria ternatea SC-134

, : Effect of phenological stage on natural nodulation, nutrient and crude protein contents of Clitoria ternatea SC-134. Pastos y Forrajes 19(1): 79-84

In field trials in Sancti Spiritus, Cuba, C. ternatea SC-134 sown in mid-Sep. in rows 50 cm apart was grown without applied fertilizers or irrigation. Analysis of nodule numbers and weight, nutrient uptake and forage CP content, and fresh and dry weights in vegetative, milky seed and mature seed stages (60, 90 and 120 d after emergence), showed that nodule numbers were highest during vegetative growth.
