Product details

Product Description


The grazing livestock of South-East Asia comprise about 28 million domestic cattle 19 million buffaloes, 6 million sheep and 17 million goats. The demand for high-quality meat and for milk is increasing and will require due consideration for strong interaction between socio-economic conditions and management of the forage production system within the existing farm systems and for marketing. This work deals with forage plants for South-East Asia. They mostly belong to the families Gramineae and Leguminosae, although other herbaceous and woody plants are eaten by animals too. About 95 species are described, including the major South-East Asian forage species, but also world-wide forages such as: Leucaena, elephant grass, stylo, Calliandra, mother-of-cocoa (Gliricidia), apa apa (Flemingia), joint vetch, gamba grass, pinto peanut, bamboo grass, palisade grass, signal grass, koronivia grass, cori grass, calopo, jackbean, centurion, centro, sunnhemp, Bermuda grass, Spanish clover, sheda grass, digit grass, siratro and speargrass.
