Abstract

Abstract

The yields of 4 strains of partridge pea, 2 of southern origin and 2 of northern origin, were compared with that of other annual forage legumes at 3 locations, under 2 cutting systems. Effects of plant height at cutting time and height of cut were studied in a greenhouse experiment. Partridge pea strains ecologically adapted, in this case of northern origin, produced good yields of forage under either cutting system at all locations, being exceeded by only soybeans of the other annual species tested. The best height of cut for partridge pea was between 5 and 9 cm and the best plant height at cutting time was between 35 and 45 cm.
