    were planted as cuttings and/or root stocks in hills 25 cm apart in a rice field and cut 6 times, the 1st cut being discarded for herbage yield. In a 2nd trial, Dapog seedlings of rice cv. C22 were transplanted 25 cm apart in a rice field and hand-weeded 14, 21, 28 or 35 days after transplanting. Annual yields were 84.3, 58.1 and 62.0 t fresh matter/ha for (a), (b) and (c), resp. Annual DM production of (a) was estimated at 24 t/ha, which was considered adequate to support 8 steers during 1 yr. Of the many weeds, Echinochloa crus-galliechinochloa crus-galliSubject Category: Organism Names

    was dominant. Stock readily accepted grass weeds and also other weeds if partially wilted and mixed with grass weeds. The total yields of weeds increased from 3.88 to 11.07 t/ha and that of rice grain decreased from 4.45 to 3.78 t/ha from the 1st to the last weeding date. Yield components were not significantly affected. It is considered possible for 1 man to collect and clean sufficient weeds to feed 4 steers daily. The economics of fodder production by both methods are given.
