A field study was carried out in order with the aim of evaluating the productive and nutritional potential of the mixture Avena sativa (A) and Vicia sativa (V), in their different association proportions (100A:0V, 75A:25V, 50A:50V, 25A:75V and 0A:100V) at 3670 masl. The planting of the mixtures was carried out on the volley, requiring 100 kg/ha and 70 kg/ha of oats and forage stained respectively. The experimental design used was the completely random, with 4 repetitions, thus using 20 plots of 25 m2. The results showed that the ratios of 25A:75V and 50A:50V were better in green forage (YGF) yields, average plant height (APH) and high raw protein content (%CP); while the 100A:0V ratio showed a much lower yield, this is due to the fact that probably the sowing date, climatic conditions and soil type had a negative influence on this species, but not on the higher proportion of forage vetch (0A:100V).
