Abstract:
Brachiaria humidicola is high important and economic value for livestock production in Vietnam. This study aimed to assess the biomass and nutrient production of B. humidicola which is first-introduced and cultivated in rice crop land in Thua Thien Hue province, Vietnam. The results showed that B. humidicola adapted sucessfully under Hue’s environmental conditions by showing the physiological growing traits. Growth and yield of B. humidicola were higher in twice crop land than in once crop land. The results showed that survival ratio after 3-month establishment reached more than 96%. Additionally, green matter, dry matter and protein yield were above 12.89, 3.62, 0.98 ton/ha/time harvested, respectively. Furthermore, this result showed also that dry matter (%), crude protein, total mineral, insoluble fiber in neutral detergent of B. humidicola were 25.36, 6.73, 70.44, 8.66 % dry matter, respectively. Our research results could provide more useful information about new introduced grass off B. humidicola planted in rice-crop lands. This might have benefical contributions to local farmers in converting cultivated crops from planting rice to grasses for cattle. In our data will providing science data and experimental facilities for planting new species for climate change adaptor in areas of Thua Thien Hue province.
