Self-regenerating annual jacroptilium legumes for double cropping with irrigated wheat or sorghum. During the establishment period, phasey bean and Aeschynomene provided high quality forage, but contributed negligibly during the second year Aiken et al. Three ecotypes with differing leaf shapes see insets High-yielding seedcrop. Phaseolus crotalarioides Phaseolus crotalarioides Martius ex Bentham, Comm.

Hence its main use is as a component of a mixture to give grazing in the first year but it also shows some promise as a one year legume ley or as a forage intercrop.

Seedlings nodulate freely with native cowpea rhizobia, and seedling growth is vigorous when sown into a prepared seed-bed. The intended name can then be chosen from any of those lists.

Inflorescence a semi-erect or erect raceme up to 15 cm long, borne on peduncle up to 40 cm long; pedicels very short; flowers red-purple, macroptipium 1. Select the criterion by which you wish to search Scientific name, Genus, Family, etc.


Aleyrodidaea serious pest of a number of crop plants. Macroptiium free-seeding, seedling regeneration in pastures only occurs under favourable conditions, and is usually poor after the second year. View county names by placing the cursor over the map.

It does not produce milk taint. These restrictions may prevent the use of one or more of the methods referred to, depending on individual circumstances. Moderate tolerance of 2,4-D amine. Phasey bean Macroptilium lathyroidesaerial part, fresh. It is likely that the potential for phasey bean lies in its use in short leys and as an intercrop, or to provide first-year feed when sown as part of a mixture for permanent pastures.

If grazing animals have scope for selection, they may avoid grazing phasey bean till after seeding. Any correct part of a taxon name can be entered and a choice of the correct one made from the small list of resulting matches.

It can be cut or grazed, but does not tolerate sustained heavy cutting or grazing which can greatly reduce or even eliminate seeding. Longer cutting intervals also had a depressive effect on leaf protein content Adjei et al. Phasey bean is adapted to a wide rainfall range of mm. Fermentation quality of phasey bean and guineagrass silages.

Three years of grassland research in the Republic of Nigeria from to Tables of chemical composition and nutritional value. Phasey bean seeds contain low levels of non-toxic lectin and moderate amounts of trypsin inhibitors Grant et al. Integrated approach to forage seed production and supplementation of dairy cows in the semiarid region of Cameroon.


A large group of seedless green plants including the mosses, liverworts, and hornworts. They do not require heat-treatment prior to use Grant et al.

Petrie, Paspalum atratumP. The association between the different organisms in a lichen is so close that lichens are routinely referred to as a single organism, and scientists classify lichens using the name of the fungal component.

Phasey bean should not be grazed heavily or continuously as this may hamper its viability. Stems sparsely to densely appressed pubescent. A searchable catalogue of grass and forage legumes. As with some other Macroptilium spp.

Phasey bean competes with weeds and is seldom referred to as a weed.
