ALARCON LICEA, Roberto et al. King Grass production like food for the bovine livestock with sprinkling irrigationof low intensity. Rev Cie Téc Agr [online]. 2014, vol.23, n.2, pp.40-44. ISSN 2071-0054.

King Grass production as food for livestock is a priority of the Cuban agriculture at present. Among clones to be developed, the Pennisetum Cuba CT -169 requires a technological package that includes the use of fertilizers and water for an appropriate development of the crop with productions that satisfy requirements of more than 20 animals. The objective of this paper are to determine the productive potential of the forage, to evaluate the number of animals which are able to keep King Grass production with the application of water through stationary and semi-stationary sprinkling irrigation systems in small areas of cooperatives. This low intensity irrigation technique has been selected for delivering irrigation standard to the crop during its vegetative cycle with an irrigation interval of 7 to 10 days allowing cuts to the King Grass starting from 45 days. The irrigation systems designed for 1 ha, response to the outlined needs and the production of them has as premise that the pieces and parts of stationary semi systems contain 76% of components of national production, while the stationary ones only have 40%. The efficiency of water application is evaluated in both cases; as well as yields of green.

Palavras-chave : productive potential and application efficiency; irrigation system.
