Description: The Panicum maximum breeding program coordinated by the Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (Embrapa) has been evaluating and selecting genotypes under different soil and climatic conditions, with the objective to release new cultivars adapted to the diverse regions of Brazil. For the Amazon biome, small-plot experiments carried out in Acre between 2003 and 2005 allowed the selection of some promising genotypes (Valentim and Andrade 2005; Valentim et al. 2006; Andrade and Valentim 2009), with higher potential for forage growth than cultivars on the market. The objective of this work was to compare 2 new P. maximum genotypes with cv. Tanzânia in relation to carrying capacity and animal performance, when managed under rotational stocking in the Amazon biome.
