CEPLAC Production

Chemical composition: it presents between 8-16%PB in MS and DIVMS 65-70%. Tolerance: It presents a tolerance dries greater of what the colonio, in function of a system to radicular deep, resists more to the attacks of cigarrinha and plagues of what the colonio, however produces little amount of seeds. Plantation: more frequent it is made using seeds. Winning Capim – Panicum maximum – cv. Winning Origin: Africa. Introduced, evaluated and launched for the CLOSED EMBRAPA.

2 Forragicultura and Pastures – IFMG/Bambu Campus – Characteristic Notes of Lesson: It is a plant of lesser transport of what colonio. It presents finer leves and colmos with a less bluish coloration. Requirement: lesser requirement in fertility of what the colonio and the cv. tobiat, tolerates levels raised in acidity of the ground and levels of Al, indicated for the culture in ground with medium fertility, demand superior precipitation 700 mm, tolerant it dries and to the cold. Productivity: inferior production compared with other Panicum, the fine colmos are its main advantage, characteristic that allows a bigger exploitation of the plant for the animal. Chemical composition: average of 12% PB/MS, can reach a production of 90 sementes/ha/ano kg.

Indications: more recommended for pastures, for bovine species, equine and ovinos. Plantation: more common for seeds. Capim Tanznia – Panicum maximum – cv. Tanznia Origin: Tanznia – Africa. Evaluated and launched in 1990 in a partnership of institutions EMBRAPA' s ACRE, CLOSED and Eastern Amaznia, EPAMIG and CEPLAC. Characteristics: the plants are well similar to the colonio, however, they present greater finer amount of leves and colmos, the inflorescncia presents pigmentao made blue in espiguetas, and the central axle or (raquis) has green coloration, the average height of the plant is of 1,30 m. Requirement: It is similar to the colonio and to tobiat, in ground fertility, it demands superior annual precipitation 750 mm and better presents distribution of the production throughout the year, tolerant dries, however, does not tolerate the encharcamento.
