Tropical legume varieties available from Barenbrug Australia
Legumes with their high protein content are an excellent source of nutrition for stock. Many legumes have deep taproots, accessing moisture and nutrients deep in the soil profile. Planted with companion grasses in a mix in good summer conditions, legumes can provide additional live weight gain in cattle. For soil health, legumes form a symbiotic relationship with rhizobia in grasses to improve atmospheric nitrogen fixing in the soil, potentially increasing the yield, seasonal growth and quality.
