Sustaining a crop-livestock farming system in the subhumid zone of Nigeria by matching feed from improved Stylosanthes-based pastures and livestock production



Sustaining a crop-livestock farming system in the subhumid zone of Nigeria by matching feed from improved Stylosanthes-based pastures and livestock production



Stylosanthes as a forage and fallow crop Proceedings of the regional workshop on the use of Stylosanthes in West Africa, Kaduna, Nigeria, 26-31 October, 1992: 167-174



Grain yields in 1991 from plots sown to Stylosanthes hamata Verano in 1990 were 2245, 1533 and 724 kg/ha for maize, sorghum and millet respectively, compared with 1654, 1476 and 475 kg in fallowed plots.
