About this book

This volume deals with forages currently used in South-East Asia or with potential use. Although South-East Asian agriculture is mostly geared to the production of rice and plantation crops, livestock play an important role in providing draft power and for the production of meat, milk and dung. The livestock in South-East Asia comprise about 28 million cattle, 19 million buffaloes, 6 million sheep and 17 million goats. With a population of about 400 million people, it can be expected that demand for meat and milk will increase considerably in the near future. Hence, improved forage production will be necessary to feed the increasing number of livestock. This can be achieved on small and large farms, provided that due consideration is given to the strong interaction between socio-economic conditions, management of the forage production system within the existing farm system, and marketing. 114 Species are described and illustrated. There are two lists of about 500 species which have been noted as being used for forage in the major historical handbooks on economically useful plants of South-East Asia. A glossary explains the terms used.
