Stylosanthes guianensis in Cambodia

This is the first planting of stylosanthes guianensis near Tonle Bati about 30 kilometres south of Phnom Penh. This was planted in July 2015.

This next image is of the same plot on August 22nd 2015. Stylo is so well adapted to sandy acid soils. I did apply a modest amount of NPK, 15-15-15 just to give it a kick along.

The following image is why I am so enthusiastic about stylo….there is a real prospect for reducing the costs of raising pigs in this country if bagged mixes are supplemented with fresh stylo. High protein and excellent fresh feed for pigs.
