    Brachiaria decumbens is a closely related east African species which has been introduced as a pasture plant throughout the tropics. It is distinguished from Brachiaria brizantha by its stoloniferous habit, flat raceme rhachis and herbaceous superior glume and inferior lemma, but the two species intergrade and some of the cultivated forms are difficult to assign. Congo grass is very similar to signal grass (Brachiaria decumbens) and is often mistaken for it (Cook et al., ). Genetic material from Congo grass has been used to hybridize with Brachiaria brizantha yielding a series of cultivars known as Mulato (Argel et al., ; Argel et al., ). Uses. Congo grass is a valuable forage for livestock.

    Stoloniferous, mat-forming annual or short-lived slender, straggling, rooting at lower nodes, 20–60 cm tall, nodes sheaths loose, glabrous or with tubercle-based hairs or ciliate margins; leaf blades lanceolate or linear-lanceolate, 4–15 (–20) × –1 cm, glabrous or pubescent, base subrounded, margins thicker and scabrous, apex acute or acuminate. In addition, species of Brachiaria in the Poaceae and Narthecium in the Liliaceae or lily family cause similar problems. Species of Agave are succulent, perennial, yucca-like herbs with spine-tipped leaves and flowers borne on elongate stalks. Of the numerous species of Agave, only one is of toxicologic significance. It is found in rocky desert.

The leaves are densely pubescent and 10–20 cm long. Its reproduction occurs through seeds, rhizomes and stolons (Lorenzi, ). Its seeds can present viability for up Brachiaria book 8 Brachiaria book the majority present.

Brachiaria, or signalgrass, is a genus of plants in the grass family native to tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, Africa, Australia, southern Europe, the Americas, and various islands.

There are over species. Some species are cultivated as species of Brachiaria were probably first introduced unintentionally to the Americas in the colonial period, from slave : Poaceae. Brachiaria cultivars namely B. decumbens cv. Basilisk, Brachiaria hybrid Mulato II, four Brachiaria brizantha cultivars Marandu, Xaraes, BRS Piata, MG4 and two Brachiaria humidicola cultivars Humidicola and Llanero were assessed in their performance with reference to establishment rates,dry matter yields, chemical and nutritive composition.

Rhodes. Brachiaria is a common name for many different cultivars of brachiaria. It Brachiaria book very confusing. It seems that only in Kenya this brachiaria nanme is used. Most other countries refer directly to the cultivat name. Seed is therefore sold as Mulato II. Brachiaria can be propagated by seeds, root Brachiaria book and stems.

Mulato Brachiaria is best propagated by seeds, though it can also be planted from vegetative material. Seed is the most appropriate mode of establishment for farmers who want to plant large areas. When using Brachiaria seeds for propagation, a farmer needs kgs per acre.

Brachiaria hybrid fodder You can plant Brachiaria grass with the rains and next year you will have a lot of forage. High Crude protein of 18% while Napier grass has 7% and Boma Rhodes has 10%.

Increases milk production in both cows and goats by 40%Tested and proven. It is a drought resistant grass does well even in dry areas. Grows up to m tall. Breeding of Brachiaria grass is a low- risk and highly profitable enterprise that will have a major impact on animal production in Kenya. There is a growing interest in Brachiaria and the demand for planting material is increasing by the day.

Farmers with entrepreneurial skills can seize this golden opportunity for Brachiaria seed production. Email. Two essentials for breeding new cultivars of Brachiaria are germplasm diversity and information on basic biological aspects of major species.

This paper reviews current knowledge on the cytological behavior, mode of reproduction and its inheritance, and crossing compatibility of different species. Brachiaria ruziziensis or Congo grass is a forage crop that is grown throughout the humid tropics.

With fast growth at the beginning of the wet season due to strong seedling vigour, ease of establishment, good seed production and yield and the ability to suppress weeds it has the ability to become developed into the most important forage crop planted in the tropics.

BRACHIARIA HYBRID (CIAT ) Mulato II grass is the newest alternative to improve productivity in semi-intensive meat and milk systems. Recommended for regions that have acid soils, medium and low fertility, prolonged periods of drought, high temperatures and high relative humidity and mainly where there is a risk of severe attacks of various species of spittlebugs.

According to Dr. Brigitte Maass, a forage scientist with CIAT in Kenya, Brachiaria cv. Mulato and cv. Mulato II are hybrids which have resulted from crosses involving 3 species; Brachiaria brizantha, B. decumbens and B. ruziziensis. The last one is used as a bridge. The result is a hybrid that is apomictic, meaning that the seeds produced are.

Statistics. The Plant List includes scientific plant names of species rank for the genus these are accepted species names. The Plant List includes a further 48 scientific plant names of infraspecific rank for the genus do not intend The Plant List to be complete for names of infraspecific rank.

These are primarily included because names of species rank are. Adaptation to shade, drought, flooding, rainfall, and defoliation are discussed. Strong regrowth under frequent defoliation is a major factor in persistence; however, this attribute probably results in the adoption of grazing management practices that work against the persistence of most legumes sown in association with Brachiaria.

Brachiaria mutica is a fast-growing perennial grass, capable of forming very dense infestations that smother riverbanks, wetlands, and floodplain vegetation, and also floating out over the water surface which reduces areas available for waterfowl and water-birds.

It is widely naturalized in tropical and subtropical regions of the world where it. Brachiaria lata provides excellent fodder for all livestock, and is cut and bundled for sale in West African markets, or is cut for storage as hay (Burkill, ).It is cited in several African countries as one of the most preferred and selected grass species.

In Northern Senegal, Brachiaria lata was among the six forages (trees and grasses) preferred by Sahel goats grazing on natural pasture. Brachiaria Grass kenya, Nairobi, Kenya. 1, likes 15 talking about this. We are a leading supplier of fodder seeds that have high protein for the dairy sector.

our products include brachiaria. Brachiaria grass is an emerging forage option for livestock production in Kenya. Kenya lies within the center of diversity for Brachiaria species, thus a high genetic variation in natural populations of Brachiaria is expected.

Overgrazing and clearing of natural vegetation for crop production and nonagricultural uses and climate change continue to threaten the natural biodiversity. Brachiaria is a tropical, warm-season grass native to Africa.

It is an extensively cultivated forage in the tropics with proven benefits on livestock productivity. Emerging disease challenges to sustainable production of Brachiaria grass in Rwanda 1. Emerging Disease Challenges to Sustainable Production of Brachiaria Grass in Rwanda B.

Uzayisenga, M. Mutimura, J. W. Muthomi A. W. Mwang'ombe & S. R. Ghimire Annual Congress of Grassland Society of Southern Africa Upington, South Africa 30 June - 4 July Brachiaria (syn. Urochloa) grass is an important tropical forage of African origin that supports millions of livestock and wildlife in the azing, conversion of grasslands for crop production and non-agricultural uses, and the introduction of improved forages have threatened the natural diversity of Brachiaria grass in Uganda.
