Integration of fodder legumes into rice-based cropping systems in Bangladesh: production of Lathyrus sativus and its use as a supplement to straw-based rations of dairy cows



Integration of fodder legumes into rice-based cropping systems in Bangladesh: production of Lathyrus sativus and its use as a supplement to straw-based rations of dairy cows



Asian Australasian Journal of Animal Sciences 13(Suppl.): 526-528



Production of the fodder legume, Lathyrus sativus, was studied in the rice fields of farmers to mitigate a shortage of fodder supply to dairy cattle and to improve soil fertility. Eight farmers broadcast seed of the fodder legume as a relay crop in standing Aman rice. Fodder yield was recorded and soil fertility was assessed. Fodder was harvested after 2 months and fed to milking cows by mixing with straw.
