Studies of Pangola Grass in Barbados

The effect of 0,224, 448 and 896 KgN/ha and 4,6, and 8-week cutting frequencies on yield, chemical composition and in vitro cellulose digestibility of Pangola grass was studied in a 32-week experiment. Increasing cutting frequency and Ν level resulted in decrease in DM and increase in CP contents. Cellulose tended to increase, and ADL to decrease as cutting decreased. Increasing Ν had little effect on cellulose, ADF, ADL or NDF. Decreasing cutting and increasing Ν increased DM yield. Yield of DM/unit Ν and of CP increased while 24-hour IVCD decreased as cutting decreased. Yield of CP and 24-hour IVCD increased with increasing levels of N.
