Management and utilization of mulberry (Morus alba) for forage in Central America


, : Management and utilization of mulberry (Morus alba) for forage in Central America. Agroforesteria en las Americas 1996; 2(7): 27-30

Morus alba is grown in Central America for livestock forage in association with the other multipurpose tree species Erythrina berteroana and Gliricidia sepium. It is also grown as live fences, and as compact plantings for erosion control. The foliage has excellent nutritive value both as a protein source and in its digestibility.
