Abstract
The influence of pasture management. On the botanical composition, productivity, and nutritive value of grassland is widely recognized elsewhere, but our knowledge of this subject under local conditions in Kenya is still rather limited, especially in relation to temporary pastures consisting of grass/legume mixtures. One of the most important problems in the management of such pastures is the maintenance of a satisfactory balance between grass and legume. Kenya white clover appears to be a particularly difficult component to control since under favourable conditions of soil and climate, it tends to dominate the grasses, and is sometimes viewed with disfavor by farmers for this reason.
