Annual Warm-Season Legumes for Florida and the US Gulf Coast: Forage Yield, Nutritional Composition, and Feeding Value (AN259)

High-quality forage legumes that can be grown during the warm-season are scarce in Florida and the Gulf Coast region. Seeded warm-season legumes, such as cowpea, soybean, and pigeonpea, are less expensive and faster to establish than perennial peanut, and they could provide nutritious forage to complement beef cattle and other ruminant animal feeding programs. This 5-page fact sheet summarizes the results of three years of field trials and two feeding trials conducted at North Florida Research and Education Center in Marianna, located in northwest Florida. Written by Jamie Foster, Robert Myer, A.T. Adesogan, Jeffery Carter, Lynn Sollenberger, and Ann Blount, and published by the UF Department of Animal Science, January 2011.
