Throughout the world, the recovery of degraded areas, the reduction of production costs and intensive use of the area throughout the year, are being made possible by crop-livestock integration under no-tillage system, being that the cereals intercrop with forage has generated positive socioeconomic and environmental results. The sheep production systems have shown a considerable growth in recent years, however, inclusion this animal species in crop-livestock integration systems is still small, requiring further studies. So, the aim of this research is available during two years the effect of Marandu and Piatã grasses intercropped with corn crop and two heights of silage harvest (20 and 45 cm) on: forage yield, plant fractions and nutritive value of silage, dry mass and macronutrients contents in the corn stalks remaining in the area and the morphological characteristics of grasses during the intercrop and during sheep grazing after silage harvest; as well as, the effect of oats overseeded after the silage harvest on: dry mass yield and pasture chemical composition from autumn to spring, the performance of sheep allocated these pastures and supplemented with silage to their treatment, the macronutrients contents and forage straw decomposition after desiccation in the spring, the fertility changes and soil penetration mechanical resistance and economic performance of crop-livestock integration under no-tillage system during the two years of study.
