4 Types of seed:

Common Name: Brachiaria Brizanthe Marandú
Family Name: Gramineae
Scientific Name: Brachiaria Brizanthe (Hochst.ex a Rich) Stapf
Cultivar: Marandu
Vegetative Cycle: Perennial
Growth Habit: Clump Semi-Erect

The Marandu has good capacity for regrowth and productivity of forage. Good capability of competition with invasive and fas establishments. Recommended for termination of animals and have good response to fertilization.

Grows well in the summer, but has their production affected by low temperatures, in a lot of pain with frosts. Has good tolerance to shade, fire and drought.

The support capabilities varies between 1.5 and 2.4 AU/ha in the rainy season and between 0.8 and 1.2 AU/ha in dry, medium fertility soils and well managed. Under these conditions the animal productivity varies between 400 to 500 kg liveweight/hectare/year.

Common Name: Brachiaria Brizanthe
Family Name: Gramineae
Scientific Name: Brachiaria Brizanthe (Hochst.ex a Rich) Stapf
Cultivar: MGS-Victory=Toledo=Xaraes
Vegetative Cycle: Perennial
Growth Habit: Clump Semi-Erect

The Xaraes is resistant to drought and has rapid regrowth. Low population levels presents the spittlebug-of-pastures and is ideal for intensification of pastureland. Can be grown in virtually all over the country, areas with good rainfall, without hars winters.

The use of pasture during the rainy season should be pretty intensified, with high pressure of pasture. By presenting late flowering, its adaptation to the dry period is greater.

The ability to support varies between 2.5 and 6.0 AU/ha in the rainy season and between 1.4 and 2.2 AU/ha in dry, medium fertility soils and well managed. Under these conditions the animal productivity varies between 600 to 810 kg liveweight/hectare/year.

 

Common Name: Coloniao Grass
Family Name: Gramineae
Scientific Name:  Panicum Maximum Jacq.
Cultivar: Mombasa
Vegetative Cycle: Perennial
Growth Habit: South Eastern (Clump)

Variety of high productivity, especially for intensified livestock production systems.  Requires medium to high fertility soils for a good establishment, as well as for full coverage of the soil. Seeding good establishment, as should be done at the beginning of the raining season.

Cespitosa plant, with height up to 1, 30 m, decumbentes leaves, with 2 to 2.6 cm broad, slightly purplish stalks, leaves and sheaths without Hairiness or cerosidade. Must be handled under rotational grazing.

Can be grown in virtually all over the country, in areas with good rainfall, without harsh winters.

The ability to support varies between 2.5 and 8.0 AU/ha in the rainy season and between 0.8 and 1.2 AU/ha in dry, high fertility soils and well managed. Under these conditions the animal productivity varies between 550 and 1,150 kg liveweight/hectare/year.

Common Name: Coloniao Grass
Family Name: Gramineae
Scientific Name:  Panicum Maximum Jacq
Cultivar: Aruana 1Z-5
Vegetative Cycle: Perennial
Growth Habit: Clump

Has medium-sized, reaching approximately 80 cm (suitable for sheep) has great ability and quickness of tillering, with good number of basal buds resprouting after each cycle of grazing.

Excellent ground cover that assists in erosion control. Foliar erect and open architecture (enabling higher incidence of solar rays). The ability to support varies between 2 and 6.0 AU/ha in the rainy season and between 1.2and 2.5 AU/ha in dry, high fertility soils and well managed. Under these conditions the animal productivity varies between 500 and 1,000 kg live weight/hectare/year.
