SIAMBAZA® grass is a high-performance Panicum with excellent germination and varietal purity due to its artisanal production carried out by Papalotla, supervising the entire process from sowing to harvest.
SIAMBAZA® is characterized by its excellent varietal purity and seed quality produced by Grupo Papalotla. In South America, the increase in cattle fed with Siambaza is approximately 770 kg / ha per year.
SIAMBAZA® grass produces fodder with abundant leaves with an incomparable leaf / stem ratio, as well as high palatability, so it is very suitable as a cutting grass to feed cattle. This high yield grass can produce between 25 and 35 tons of dry matter per hectare per year.
Siambaza® grass is a tall plant that can reach up to 165 cm. requires soils of medium natural fertility, always well drained with pH between 5 and 8.
It is characterized by its nutritional quality, Siambaza gives us a very rich nutritional table with good values in protein (reaching up to 16%), energy, fiber, sugars and high digestibility obtaining in vitro studies percentages of 65%. It presents a percentage of 82% of leaves during the year.
It produces on average 33 ton. of MS / ha / year equivalent to 165 ton. of MV / ha / year.

The video is from Saudi Arabia, where they are fertilizing the crop with a home base natural fertilizer:10 liters of water, 30 grams of sugar and 30 grams of yeast per acre. They let it sit for 4 hours and then apply it to leaves and roots. Amazing results in the crude protein percentages obtained, and they have 8 to 9 cuttings per year every 20 days, also height of plant is important, they leave the plant at 5 inches height for cutting from the soil and its height is at 4-5 feet.
A lot of farmers tie the seed heads together and then lie the seed heads down along the rows. This makes harvesting easier and also if strong winds occur, less seed gets blown off.
In one village the farmers have invented a special cart to collect the seed. This is pushed along underneath the seed heads down the rows. In one photo you will see the cart pushed under the seed heads but this was only a demonstration. There was no cloth tied on the cart. They will start harvesting today in that particular field and the blue cloth will be tied over the cart frame.
