Effect of nitrogen fertilization on yield and quality of multicut tropical forages. (129)
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- ).
