Improved Pastures Support Early Indicators of Soil Restoration in Low-input Agroecosystems of Nicaragua
Several apomictic Brachiaria (Trin.) Griseb. (syn. Urochloa P. Beauv.) species are commercially important tropical forage grasses, but little is known about the interspecific diversity and population structure within this genus. Previously published genus-level Brachiaria phylogenies were conducted with few genotypes and contradicted well-establish...
A study was conducted to identify the most productive cultivars and their cutting management to optimize nutrient productivity in semi-arid areas of Rwanda. Four cultivars of Brachiaria brizantha (Piatá, MG4, Marandú and Xaraes), two cultivars of Brachiaria humidicola (Llanero and Humidicola), two cultivars of Brachiaria hybrid (Mulato and Mulato I...
