Gliricidia sepium: genetic resources for farmers - Tropical Forestry Paper No 33 edited by J L Steward, G E Allison and A J Simons 1996 1 25pp ISBN 0 85074 139 4 ISSN 0141 9668 price UKL 12 50 to institutions and individuals in developed countries
Gliricidia sepium is widely used throughout the tropics for fodder, fuelwood and poles, live fencing, erosion control, shade and support for other crops, as well as soil improvement through biological nitrogen fixation. It is simple to propagate either from seed or from stakes and it responds vigorously to a wide range of management techniques. This Tropical Forestry Paper provides a synopsis of the current state of knowledge, summarizing research findings and attempting also to synthesize these into practical recommendations for users. Throughout the book, descriptions of formal research are balanced by discussion of related issues and implications. Each chapter addresses a different subject area, some of which are of immediate practical applicability while others explore more fundamental scientific issues.
