Abstract: The field experiment was conducted during two consecutive years (2001-02 and 2002-03) at C. R. Farm, B. C. K. V., West Bengal under upland situation to evaluate the performance of two Stylosanthes cultivars under three levels of phosphorus and three levels of cutting. Stylosanthes seabrana 2534 proved to be superior with respect to growth parameters, green forage and dry matter yield over S. seabrana 104710. Increment of phosphorus and cutting levels significantly increased green forage and dry matter yield. The cultivar S. seabrana 2534 with application of 60 kg P2O5 ha-1 and 3 cutting levels gave the best result in terms of economics.
