Tropical Forage Plants: Development and Use covers the research and resulting pasture development in the tropics and subtropics, which has undergone dramatic changes in the past few decades. Providing a broad, global perspective, it serves as a comprehensive resource covering a wide range of subjects pertaining to forage and animal production in the tropics and subtropics including such aspects as agronomy, pasture management, forage plant breeding, soils, plant nutrition, and disease management and control.
The book presents extensive coverage of the technical aspects of forage-based agriculture in the tropics. It addresses both the scientific aspects of this technology and its practical application. The editors integrate the extensive research on tropical forage species in the western hemisphere with that of global research efforts. They provide over 15,000 references that lay the groundwork for further research.
The editors have assembled an excellent mixture of theorists and applied scientists giving the book wide-ranging, interdisciplinary appeal. In addition to providing extensive coverage of development and usage globally, Tropical Forage Plants: Development and Use presents the key aspects of selecting, breeding, and managing superior pastures in the tropics in the context of meeting local needs and global environmental concerns.
