[en] A field study was conducted under rainfall conditions (1200 mm/year) to determine the effects of different cutting heights (5, 10, 15, 20 cm) on dry matter production and fodder quality of four Panicum maximum local ecotypes (HHLLLW, MHMLLW, lHSLNL, lHLLLW) differing in their morphology. Ecotype MHMLLW appeared more suitable and the best management is to harvest at 15 cm height. It produced 6054 kg DMyear-1 containing 8.05% CP.
