Guatemala grass (Tripsacum laxum) originating from Tropical America was introduced to Cameroon as an attempt to solve the
problem of low forage availability during the dry season.
forage production under cow dung fertilization
associated with the probiotic Light Matrix Organic (LMO) was evaluated at Bambui, North-West Cameroon. The study was
carried out during the raining season (July-November) 2011 in plots established in 2010 using a factorial design with 4 cow dung
application levels (0, 7.5, 15 and 22.5 t/ha) each with or without LMO (10ml/l water). Growth was evaluated monthly while forage
yield and nutritive value evaluation were done after 120 days of regrowth. The results showed that cow dung application appeared
to have an ameliorating effect on the growth and fresh yield while the association of cow dung with LMO improved the dry matter
yield and nutritive value of the forage. The cow dung application level of 15t/ha associated with LMO recorded the best output in
terms of productivity (5.2 ?0.6 DM t/ha) and nutritive value (9% DM Crude Protein)
