Legumes vary widely in their ability to prevent erosion, suppress weeds and add organic matter to the soil. In general, legume cover crops do not scavenge N as well as grasses.

If you need a cover crop to take up excess nutrients after manure or fertilizer applications. "Tropical forage plants represent an enormous potential for use in developing sustainable, integrated agricultural production systems in the tropics everywhere.

This book contributes through synthesis of information to a global overview of tropical plants, their potential and constraints, their use and importance, and current research activities.". Use of forage legumes in the tropics for animal feeding has been limited, mainly because of the lack of knowledge and of inadequate economic incentives.

However, advances in improving varieties and in developing suitable agronomic and management practices are promising and legume-based forage deserves consideration.

This book provides information on the potential of high-protein, soil Cited by: decades, though, forage specialists have identified a wide variety of tropical forage grasses and legumes that are highly productive, show superior nutritional quality, and are well suited to marginal agroecosystems characterized by low soil fertility and drought.

Pasture forages for beef cattle can be roughly divided into five categories—warm-season perennials, warm-season annuals, cool-season perennials, cool-season annuals and legumes for pastures. Each of these forage types can meet the nutritional requirements of beef cattle when they are at their peak production (Figure 1).

Tropical perennial grasses – pasture quality and livestock production SP Boschma. higher quality forage than tropical grasses. However, in pure stands it has the disadvantage of Tropical perennial grasses – pasture quality and livestock production. This publication, directed to technicians and farmers, is a tool for the selection of tropical forage species in different soil and climatic conditions.

Five sections outlining the key features of 66 species of grasses and legumes and annexes that complement the use and management of these species. The world-wide interest in forage tree legumes may seem relatively recent probably because publications and promotion of tree legumes have greatly increased over the past years.

In reality, the use of tree legumes in tropical farming systems dates back to the beginning of domestic agriculture, although early use was not for forage.The tropical forage community have defined priorities in the Tropical Forage Conservation Strategy.
