Abstract:

In the current study, 100 accessions belonging to four species of the genus Stylosenthes were evaluated for adaptation and preliminary forage yield in an augmented block design at the forage nursery site of the Jimma Agricultural Research Center during the main cropping season of 2018 to 2021 under a rain-fed condition. Data on plant vigor, fresh and dry matter yields were collected and analyzed. The result revealed a significant difference among the genotypes for field plant vigor, fresh and dry matter yields. These results indicated that the test treatments were significantly different from checks. Among the accessions, 11755 scored the highest mean fresh and dry matter yields (t/ha).
