Over a five year period pure stands of Medicago sativa and mixtures of M. sativa and Eragrostis curvula have done as well and better than E. curvula receiving 300 kg N/ha, and considerably better than treatments receiving 200 and 100 kg N/ha, indicating that evaluation using livestock and incorporation into production systems should now receive priority.
