Abstract
A trial evaluating the productivity of Desmodium uncinatum when grown in association with Nandi Setaria is described. Yields of dry matter and nitrogen are given. The total dry matter and nitrogen yield of Nandi Setaria/ Desmodium uncinatum treatment were consistently higher than those of the grass alone receiving no fertilizer nitrogen. The yield of nitrogen from the grass component was slightly improved by presence of the legume during the last three years of the trial. The response of the grass to fertilizer nitrogen was good during the trial period.
