The dry matter production of 9 herbaceous
legume species was evaluated over 3 years for
their suitability as forage species in the subhumid
regions of Uganda. Dry matter production of
Centrosema pascuorum (6774), Chamaecrista
rotundifolia (Wynn), Clitoria ternatea (9291),
Macroptilium atropurpureum (Siratro), Stylosanthes guianensis (Cook), S. guianensis (163),
S. hamata (Verano), S. scabra (441) and S.
scabra (Seca) was assessed after 3-,6-,9- and 12-
weeks regrowth in the wet season and after 6-
and 12-weeks regrowth in the dry season. The
Stylosanthes species were most productive in
both wet and dry seasons. Appropriate seed production technologies need to be developed to
make seed available for further studies and for
distribution to farmers.
