About this book

The farming systems of Southern Australia currently rely on annual legume-based pastures to provide nitrogen for the following crop, particularly wheat. With rising salinity and acidity, it is acknowledged that such a system is unsustainable, and should yield tor a system that uses more water, such as a more perennial based system. This book gives a comprehensive review of current knowledge of perennial legumes for Mediterranean areas.
