Abstract

The effect of two grazing heights and three grazing intervals on a stand of Star grass was determined over 2 consecutive years of grazing under humid tropical conditions. A stand of Star grass was maintained better with high grazing (15-20 cm or 6-8 inches) at all grazing intervals than with low grazing (2.5-7.5 cm or 1-3 inches). The stand increased with length of grazing interval with low grazing up to 28 days and with high grazing increased only to the 21-day interval. It appears best to graze Star to a height of about 15-20 cm (6-8 inches) approximately every 3 weeks during seasons of flush growth and every 4 weeks during the slow growing winter season.
