L.N. Singh (Author) A. Singh (Author) J. Singh (Author)
Synopsis This book on forage grasses and legumes is an attempt in documenting basic information about important species of grasses and legumes of both tropical and temperate region. Attempt has also been made to present information about their origin, morphological description, reproduction, chromosome number, seed characteristics, adaptability, herbage production and herbage quality. It is hoped that these information would be helpful in knowing our forage grasses and legumes better for efficient utilization particularly of waste, barren, rangelands and mountainous area through increase in herbage production and inturn livestock production. There are a large number of grasses and legumes of annual growth habit and are under cultivation on arable land for fodder purpose. These have not been covered in this book. There is need of greater attention of farmers as well as Government institutions to augment forage resources for improving livestock productivity to improve the economy of farmers particularly in developing countries.
