Abstract
In two experiments conducted at Alupe, four Stylosanthes guyanensis cultivars (Endeavour, cook, Ex. Kitale and Schofield)were evaluated. Anthracnose attack intensified with maturity with cv. Endeavour showing most tolerance. Seed production was more indeterminate by cultivars Endeavour and Ex.Kitale from which most seed was obtained. The highest seed yields were 122.10 kg/ha, 106.17 kg/ha, 91.35 kg/ha and 103.71 kg/ha from cultivars Endeavour, Cook, Ex. Kitale and Schofield, respectively, after 8 months from sowing. The mean dry matter production was between 1,800 kg/ha and 4,400 kg/ha. Leaf dry matter was variable with the cultivars most attacked by anthracnose yielding less leaf in later stages of growth.
