An experiment was conducted at Pecatu Village, Bukit, Badung district, Bali with the aim to study the growth of buffelgrass and stylo verano legume growing under shade of 'lamtoro' (Leucaena leucocephala), at the distance of 0.5 m, 1.0 m, 1.5 m, 2.0 m and 2.5 m from the trunk. The data were analysed using non Parametric Chi Square method. The intensity of sun radiation under the shade of Leucaena increased with the increase of the distance from the tree trunk. Topography of the land influenced the intensity of sun radiation. On the slope the intensity of sun radiation was lower than on the flat lands. With the increasing distance from the tree trunk the growth of buffelgrass and stylo verano legume (tillers, density, and area covered) increased (P 0.05). (Modified author's abstract)

Recommended tropical pasture grasses, legumes and five grass-legume mixtures were tested in the Ilocos for yield, quality and persistency. Results showed that dry matter herbage yield of napier grass was significantly greater (19.5 t/ha) compared with all other grasses 60 days after planting. Yield of paragrass, signalgrass, stargrass, ruzzi and green timothy did not significantly vary with each other. At 45-day cutting interval, napiergrass consistently gave the highest yield of 20.9, 27.4, 10.2 and 10.5 t/ha from the second to fifth harvests, respectively. Significant differences were observed among treatment means at all harvest, respectively. Significant differences were observed among treatment means at all harvest intervals. Optimum protein quality ranged from 9.4 to 14.8%, with buffelgrass (Cenchrus ciliaris) having the highest. Percentage in vitro dry matter digestibility (IVDMD) of the different grasses differed significantly from each other. Highest digestiility (50.2%) was recorded from green timothy.|Initial yield, regrowth, and digestibility of grass-legume mixtures significantly varied from each other. Napier + centrosema gave the highest yield, 110 DAP at 60 day cutting interval and the highest digestibilities. Stylo stargrass mixture digestibilities was also high (55.9%).|Initial yields of pasture legume did not vary with each other at 120 days after sowing. However, subsequent yield at 60 days cutting interval showed that stylo-CIAT 136 significantly gave higher yield than the other legumes tested.
