Dinanath grass (Pennisetum pedicellatum Trin.) and teosinte (Euchlaena mexicana Schra,J.), which were not significantly different, recorded significantly (P = 0.05) higher yields of fresh herbage, dry matter, crude protein and digestible dry matter than Sudan grass (Sorghum arundinaceum (Desv.) Stapf var. sudanense (Stapf) Hitchc.). Increase in N levels increased both yield (siP.nificant up to 100 kg N ha-1) and crude protein and dry matter digestibility (significant up to 150 kg N ha- ).
