PEREIRA, Antônio Vander; LEDO, Francisco José da Silva  e  MACHADO, Juarez Campolina. BRS Kurumi and BRS Capiaçu - New elephant grass cultivars for grazing and cut-and-carry system. Crop Breed. Appl. Biotechnol. [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.1, pp.59-62. ISSN 1518-7853.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1984-70332017v17n1c9.

Cultivar BRS Kurumi is characterized by short plant height, short internodes, high dry matter production (29.25 t ha-1yr-1), has a high nutritional value and is recommended for the cut-and-carry system or grazing. Cultivar BRS Capiaçu, indicated for silage and the cut-and-carry system, has tall upright growth, high dry matter production (49.75 t ha-1yr-1), good forage quality, is lodging-resistant and suitable for mechanical harvesting. Both cultivars are vegetatively propagated by stem cuttings.
