Both herbage yield and quality of teosinte (Euchlaena mexicana Schrad.) increased with increase in N application. The increase in herbage yield with 100 kg N ha-1 was significantly in single-cut and with 150 kg N ha-1 in a two-cut system. Single-cut management was, however, significantly (P = 0.05) superior over two-cut management in yield but the reverse was true in herbage quality expressed as crude protein content and digestibility. In single-cut, delay in harvest from tassel to silk stage improved the yield but lowered the quality.
