Germplasm of priority was established in CIAT-Quilichao for seed increase and for observations on the most important plant descriptors (plant form, growth habit, flowering time, perennially, etc.). Germplasm adaptation to the Quilichao environment was assessed in terms of: yield potential on a very acid, infertile Ultisol, including regrowth after cutting and performance during the two rather short but severe dry seasons that prevail in Quilichao; disease and pest resistance; and seed production potential. This initial evaluation consisted in defining which materials should be given priority in the flow of germplasm to the Program's principal screening sites in the savanna ecosystems (Carimagua).
