  • In order to determine the response of some tropical grass species to low light situations such as under plantation crops, seasonal cloud cover, etc., six tropical forage grasses were evaluated over a 20 month period on an Oxic Haplustoll in Hawaii (100 m above sea level) under four light regimes (100, 70, 45, and 27/, daylight using polypropylene netting) in the field. The forage grasses evaluated were: Brachiaria brizantha, B. miliifirmis, Digitaria decumbens, Panicum maximum, Pennisetum… CONTINUE READING
