    /ha and cut 3 or 4 times/year. Total DM yield averaged 30.9 t/ha and was higher at the higher planting rate and with 3 cuts/year. DM yield of P. purpureum × P. americanum was similar in the mixture (22.1 t/ha) and in the pure stand (22.9 t). CP content of the grass was increased from 4.7% in pure stand to 6.1% in the mixture and was highest at the high tree density and with 3 cuts/year. CP yield increased from 1.03 t in pure stands to 2.82 t in the mixture.
