The effect of frequency of defoliation on the productivity of selected forage legumes (Stylosanthes hamata, Stylosanthes capitata and Centrosema pascuorum) in the sub-humid zone of Nigeria


, : The effect of frequency of defoliation on the productivity of selected forage legumes (Stylosanthes hamata, Stylosanthes capitata and Centrosema pascuorum) in the sub-humid zone of Nigeria. Experimental Agriculture 31(1): 13-19

The DM yield, nutritive value and persistence of three legume species (Stylosanthes hamata, S. capitata, and Centrosema pascuorum), cut at different frequencies during the growing season or only once at the end of the growing season were compared in 1988-90. The shorter cutting intervals enhanced regrowth, but very frequent cutting reduced total DM and seed yields. A defoliation interval of 3-6 weeks is recommended.
