Its growth in erect tussocks—explaining its name—makes cutting easy while the grass remains tender, even when mature. Ideal as cut-and-carry grass and for both hay and silage production, Cobra responds well to fertilization in intensive systems.
Its growth in erect strains facilitates cutting by staying soft, even in a state of maturity. It is ideal as a cutting grass and for the production of hay and silage. It responds very well to fertilization in intensive systems.
COBRA® grass is the best alternative to achieve a high production of green matter and dry matter in intensive grass cutting systems both to provide fresh grass to cattle or to produce hay and silage. It can also be used in grazing, when the farm on land of good fertility, requires a hybrid that offers more available grass for livestock consumption.
COBRA® grass has great power to produce green matter available in a short time for feeding animals, presenting a high growth rate in cuts every 45 days, surpassing cutting materials such as sorghum and with higher nutritional quality. This quality and production is manifested in an increase in animal production since they will have a high availability of very high quality protein and digestibility fodder.
In trials carried out both in CIPAT Mexico and in Costa Rica, the COBRA® hybrid has managed to produce more dry matter when cuts are made between 30 and 45 days, surpassing forage sorghum and Mulato II. The advantage of COBRA® grass with respect to the other cutting materials is that it produces a greater amount of fodder with high protein content, in addition to having a high digestibility (69%) and palatability so the animal prefers it to other materials of the genus pennisetum and sorghum.
COBRA® grass, unlike MULATO II® and CAYMAN®, has an erect growth with very well-defined strains ideal for cutting grass. This type of growth gives you the ability to easily recover from both cutting and grazing.
In addition, Cobra grass, under intensive production systems (irrigation and fertilization), can produce 6 to 8 kg of green fodder per square meter every 60 days; With this, its great production of fodder and quality make it an excellent alternative for cattle of cattle or cattle.

Cobra grass adapts to well-drained soils of medium-to-high fertility.
Due to drought stress, most Brachiaria grasses flower early.
Cobra grass does not tolerate prolonged waterlogging.
Paddock appraisal is a practice that helps us calculate the volume of grass produced per unit area.
Careful data recording is important in all measurement processes.
This grass is easy to handle because its stems are not thick and do not have high water content like those of marafalfa.
HIGHLY PALATABLE AND DIGESTIBLE. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THERE IS NO NEED TO CHOP THIS GRASS.
IT IS EASY TO TRANSPORT.
