The design of this field experiment was a completely randomized block arrangement, consisted of 16 treatments(Gliricidia sepium provenances) and 6 blocks as replications with 12 plants per provenance. Of the 16 gliricidia provenances, six were from Mexico(M), four were from Guatemala(G), and one each was from Colombia(C), Indonesia(I), Nicaragua(N), panama(P), Costa Rica짰, and Venezuela(V). After 12 months establishment the gliricidia were lopped regularly 4 times a year, twice during the 4 months wet season and twice during the 8 months dry season at 150 cm height. There was variation(p<0.05) in stem elongation from 22 to 80 cm, leaf retained from 118 to 209%, branch number from 13 to 24, fodder yield from 1,015 to 1,671 g DW/plant and wood yield from 792 to 1,662 g DW/plant among the provenances; and such variations were affected by the seasons. Belen(N14), Retalhuleu(G14) and Bukit Bali(I) provenances were ranked first, second and third, respectively, measured in terms of leaf retention, stem elongation, fodder and wood yields during the wet and dry seasons.
