Innovation for pasture management

Harvested Forage in the production systems of Latin America and the Caribbean is very low in relation to their potential. In tropical areas, such as Costa Rica, the production of dry matter (DM) of the main forage species ranges between 10 and 25 t DM / ha / year, but on average the animals consume less than 45 % of the available pasture. In temperate zones, such as Uruguay, forage production on a...
