Performance of tropical pasture legumes grown in southwestern islands of japan 3. the comparative dry matter yields and the role of legume in the mixed croppings of sirato and 6 tropical pasture grasses



Grassland Science 29(2): 131-140



To find grass species which show good compatibility with Siratro (Macroptilium atropurpureum cv. Siratro), and to evaluate the role of Siratro in mixed croppings for increasing pasture productivity, dry matter yield, percent legume and legume effect on increasing yield were compared under 2 clipping intensities using pure and mixed croppings of Siratro and 6 tropical pasture grasses: Guinea grass (Panicum maximum, Ok-72-1040), Rhodes grass (Chloris gayana cv. Pioneer), Pangola grass (Digitaria decumbens), Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon cv. Common), setaria (Setaria anceps cv. Kazungula) and Monbrasam grass (D. monbrasam). In the established phase of the pasture, annual total dry matter yield of Siratro mixed with Pangola grass, Guinea grass and setaria were greater than those with Rhodes grass, Bermuda grass and Monbrasam grass showing greater mixture effect expressed in the former cases. Percent legume and mixture effect on increasing dry matter yield increased with longer clipping interval especially when the legume component in the mixture received significant favorable effect. With shorter clipping interval the mixture effect occurred in the grass component, being more stressed in the association with a grass species which show greater growth during high temperature periods. With longer clipping interval, the legume component receive more favorable effect of mixture, especially in the associations with grasses of higher plant height. Pangola grass, Guinea grass and setaria are suitable for mixing with Siratro for increasing mixture effect when grown in the southern part of the southwestern islands of Japan.
