A legume-based, pasture production strategy for acid infertile soils of tropical America

A legume-based, pasture production strategy for acid infertile soils of tropical America

Soil erosion and conservation in the tropics ASA Special Publication Number 43 [Kussow, W; El Swaify, SA; Mannering, J Editors]: 97-120

A low input soil management strategy designed to take advantage of acid soil infertility for pasture production has resulted from teamwork by various research institutions. This review outlines the 9 main components of this strategy, including studies of ecotypes of grasses such as Brachiaria decumbens and legumes such as Stylosanthes capitata which are tolerant of Al and low levels of available P.
