Below are the recommended forage grasses and legumes that you can cultivate and they thrive well in the tropics and savannahs with good nutrients. Please note that grasses are basically rich in fiber while legumes are majorly proteins and very rich in nitrogen.

Cowpeas (Vigna unguiculata) and lablab (Lablab purpureus) are fast growing, annual, summer forage are excellent quality crops for fattening both sheep and cattle, and are also regarded as good feed for milking cows. In a crop rotation program, they can significantly improve soil nitrogen levels by nitrogen fixation or by incorporation in soil as a green manure crop. bloat and should be managed properly. Birdsfoot trefoil, sainfoin, crownvetch, and most tropical legumes are non-bloating legume species. Livestock are most likely to bloat on clover pastures in the early spring. One theory is that the warmer day temperatures increase photosynthesis or the synthesis of carbohydrates and proteins.

Credit: Shawn Landersz. Although tropical forage legumes have been grazed in natural habitats for many years, they have only been cultivated for only 75 years. However, some, like Centrosema pubescens, Lablab purpureus and Pueraria javanica were used as cover crops and green manure at least a century earlier.

Forage legumes are commonly provided to animals in grass-legume mixtures. In the temperate regions, clovers, medics, trefoils, and vetches are important.

In tropical. The legume family (Fabaceae) is an important plant family for the provision of food and feed. Legumes have symbiosis with nitrogen-fixing bacteria, giving them highly valuable agronomic characteristics: reduced needs for fertilizer application, products with a high protein content and improved agronomic, environmental and economic sustainability.

Forage is a plant material (mainly plant leaves and stems) eaten by grazing livestock. Historically, the term forage has meant only plants eaten by the animals directly as pasture, crop residue, or immature cereal crops, but it is also used more loosely to include similar plants cut for fodder and carried to the animals, especially as hay or silage.

The literature concerning the agronomic characteristics and nutritive value of the legume Lablab purpureus (Lab lab) is reviewed. In conclusion, fresh Pueraria phaseoloides forage can be used without restriction in rabbit feeding as a source of fibre and protein. However, tropical kudzu protein covers about 65% and 75% of the requirements for sulphur-containing amino acids and lysine, respectively, and only 80% and 50% of calcium and phosphorus requirements (Lebas, ).

Why alt tropical forage legumes. Adding large amounts of feed concentrate is one way used to boost milk yields on tropical dairy farms, said the researchers. The concentrate mixes tend to be high in crude protein (CP) to supplement low protein levels in common forages, which include grass hay, cereal straw and corn or sorghum silage.

This is an excellent book on a subject which has become one of the most important in tropical agriculture. The potential usefulness of forage legumes in the tropics is vast. Enormous areas of grazing sustain a very low level of animal production since seasonal rains allow plant growth and a corresponding reasonable quality of herbage for only part of the by: Tropical forage legumes.
