    legumes in pastures and for soil improvement dates back to the Romans, with Varro (37 BC; cited by Fred et al. []) noting “Legumes should be planted in light soils, not so much for their own crops as for the good they do to subsequent crops.” This paper briefly overviews the legumes . Pasture species and varieties used in NSW and listed below are categorised as: temperate or tropical grass; temperate or tropical legume; native grass; pasture herb; forage shrub; For a brief explanation of the main pasture plant groups and their characteristics, go to Categories of pasture plants.

    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. Summer-annual use of legume crops includes, in colder climates, the use of the winter-annual crops listed above, as well as warm-season legumes such as cowpeas. Grown as summer annuals, these crops produce N and provide ground cover for weed and erosion control, as well as other benefits of growing cover crops.

    This book explores the importance of heavy clay soils to agricultural productivity in the tropics and subtropics and the identification of adapted, productive forage legumes for this environment. Covering over four decades of research, Tropical Forage Legumes. Tropical Legumes-II is a joint initiative of three international agricultural research centres, viz. ICRISAT (chickpea, groundnut and pigeonpea), IITA (cowpea & soybean), and CIAT (common bean) that aims to increase productivity and production of legumes and the income of poor farmers in SSA and SA by 15 percent, with improved varieties.

LEGUME IDENTIFICATION Plants in the Leguminosae family have characteristic leaves and pods that help identify them as legumes. The leaves are usually alternate (Figure 2 14) and compound (Figure 8, 9, 13, 14, and 15).They may be pinnate (Figure 9) or trifoliate (Figure 12).

Tropical pasture improvement is in its infancy in many countries and its development depends on combining existing knowledge with a vigorous research programme. Research should be concentrated on the provision of adapted legumes and grasses, the correction of soil nutrient deficiencies, and the efficient utilization of pasture by grazing animals.

Pasture Improvement (Tropical) What is pasture improvement. Pasture improvement is the process of developing country to increase the nutritive value and performance of pasture grasses and legumes. Pasture improvements may take the form of: fertiliser applications to promote existing grass and legume species, blade plough/oversowing and direct.

Tropical legumes, grown as green manure/cover crops, are an important option that smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa have for maintaining the productive capacity of their soils.

Success, however, depends on proper legume selection. Importantly, the book explores the physiobiochemical, molecular and omic approaches that are used to overcome biotic and abiotic constraints in legumes.

It looks at the exogenous application of phytoprotectants; the role of nutrients in the alleviation of abiotic stress; and the microbial strategy for the improvement of legume production under.Abstract. In tropical regions, nitrogen (N) deficiency is frequently one of the major factors limiting the yield of grain crops which makes the contribution of symbiotic nitrogen fixation (SNF) of great importance, especially when legumes are involved in the cropping systems.Use of tropical legume cover crops in cropping systems is an important strategy to improve fertility of these soils for sustainable crop production.

Data are limited on nutrient uptake and use efficiency of tropical cover crops under different acidity levels.
