Preliminary results of a stocking rate trial in Lesotho


Forage responses to stocking rates and seasons were determined over a one-year period. The experimental design consisted of three stocking rates namely, light (2.0ha LSU-1), moderate (1.25ha LSU-1) and heavy (0.5ha LSU-1) and four seasons (autumn, winter, spring and summer) combined factorially in a Randomised Complete Block Design with three replicates per treatment. Data collected included aboveground available phytomass production, botanical composition and crude protein content.
