Performance of tropical pasture legumes grown in southwestern islands of japan 1. dry matter production of 4 tropical legumes grown in pure or in mixture with rhodes grass



Performance of tropical pasture legumes grown in southwestern islands of japan 1. dry matter production of 4 tropical legumes grown in pure or in mixture with rhodes grass



Grassland Science 28(2): 161-169



To evaluate the potential of the tropical pasture legumes for increasing pasture productivity in the southwestern islands of Japan, the dry matter production of 4 tropical legumes grown in pure or in mixture with rhodes grass were compared to each other or with pure rhodes grass applied with 4 levels of N fertilizer under 2 plant heights at clipping during 2 yr. The legume species used in the experiment were Macroptilium atropurpureum cv. Siratro, Glycine wightii cv. Cooper, Desmodium intortum cv. Greenleaf and Stylosanthes humilis cv. Townsville. 'Siratro' out-yielded other legumes and had better persistency either in pure or in mixed stands indicating greater potential for pasture use in the southwestern islands of Japan. 'Townsville' had a greater dry matter yield in the 1st yr but disappeared from the pasture in the 2nd yr suggesting that perennial Stylosanthes spp. might be prominant in these areas. Greater potentials of 'Siratro' and the 1st year's 'Townsville' were also proved with the data analysis which showed increased productivity of these species even during hot and dry seasons.
