Abstract
In grassland practice, if the widespread introduction of a new or improved husbandry method is to be successful, the change should involve the minimum of extra expenditure of time, money and effort. This is particularly true in a country like Uganda which has mainly a peasant agriculture. If it is desirable to replace natural regenerated herbage, after cropping, with a seeded ley, the change should be carried out with little more than the expenditure on the seed. This can only be accomplished by establishing the grass under the last arable crop. During 1953 at Entebbe one observation plot of Chloris gayana was sown under a sorghum cover crop. This paper is a record of these observations, together with a discussion of the implications when applied to agriculture in general in Uganda.
