The investigations described were carried out at Los Banos, Laguna, Philippines, where the wet season lasts from June to Dec. and the remaining months are dry. Herbage yields of Guinea grass increased at an increasing rate with advancing maturity and, for a given age of herbage, were depressed by about 40% in the dry season compared to the wet.
